About Me

Larry lives and works in Boulder, Colorado where he has lived since 1988. He has exhibited widely in solo and group shows in Colorado, Virginia, and North Carolina. Larry also exhibited at the Biennale of Contemporary Art in Florence, Italy in December of 2003.

Larry began his formal art studies at the University of Virginia where he studied sculpture and music theory. In addition to studying at UVA, he has studied at the Art Students League of Denver and with a number of private instructors including Jim Valone in Denver, Colorado; Ralph Gray in Luling, Texas; Mark Lunning in Denver, Colorado; and L.V. Davis in Boulder, Colorado.

Although he studied sculpture in school, Larry has focused almost exclusively on painting and printmaking since 1995. Larry's primary art influences include Jim Dine, Larry Rivers, Rico Lebrun, Mauricio Lazansky, Jean Ipousteguy, and the German Expressionists from the early 20th century.

Additional influences on his art include his studies of aboriginal living skills, animal tracking, and martial arts. Larry has a graduate degree in Anthropology and has worked as a cultural anthropologist with Indian Tribes in South Dakota, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Arizona.
