Dave’s active lifelong interest in art began at age 10. He trained at the Cincinnati Art Museum, Northern Kentucky University, many artist workshops, and most recently Thomas More College (Associate of Arts ’96). Dave painted as a hobby for many years but after a career as a mechanical engineer committed to achievement as a professional artist. He joined the Cincinnati Art Club in 1985 and was judged to signature status in 1988. He served in various Club leadership roles, including President, through the 1990’s and early 2000’s. He was granted Honorary Signature membership in 2013. He currently acts as Club Historian and continues to paint regularly.
