David majored in art at Wesleyan University, Connecticut (B,A. 1965) and studied at the Art Students League in New York, He had a Fulbright scholarship in Art History in Germany, followed by a Masters degree in Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania (1969). While practicing architecture in Northern California since 1972, he has maintained painting as a love and avocation.
He has exhibited his work in a variety of venues, including the Art at the Source open studios, the Soundscape Gallery, the Sebastopol Center for the Arts, and the Sea Ranch Lodge.
The abstract method he uses to paint is an equally creative antithesis to technical drawing, as the style is essentially free, subject to surprise. The paint is poured on the canvas, sometimes on prestretched frames and often on canvas which is stretched after completion. The process is dynamic and somewhat unpredictable. The result is a wonderful blend of overlapping
shape and color.
