Born in southern California, Dave moved to the Bay Area in 1959. He began creating custom stained glass pieces in 1973 while living in Los Gatos, California. After several trips to the southwest, he moved to Santa Fe in 1979 to raise his family. Dave has glass installations in numerous homes in the Santa Fe area.
A custom housepainter by profession, and inspired by the stunning southwest landscapes he enjoys on hikes and motorcycle tours, Dave began oil painting in 2002. A self-taught studio painter, he specializes in painting landscapes, churches and old adobe structures in the southwest and Mexico. His work can currently be seen at True West in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
