David was born in Prince Edward Island, Canada. Nine years ago, he moved to Lubbock, Texas from Kilkenny, Ireland after living in L' Arche community with individuals with special needs. At present, he is a Masters in Art education graduate student and part time instructor in the art department at Texas Tech University.
His introduction to art came from an abstract artist named Neil Chodorow from New York, who was his neighbor growing up. Dr. Chodorow gave him special instruction starting at the age of four and a great passion for art. Since then, painting has always been an integral part of his life.
When David immerses himself in creating art, it becomes a meditative process. His main inspiration comes mostly from God's creation, which stems from growing up on a farm and living by the sea. He also finds inspiration from music, poetry, and other artistic/love relationships that spring forth life into his creative process.
Charles has more than twenty plus years of experience in graphic design, and is currently working as a freelance graphic designer, illustrator and sculptor in Lubbock. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Design Communications from Texas Tech University. He returned to Texas Tech ten years later for postgraduate work in sculpture and ceramics, as well as a visiting instructor of graphic-design and color therapy.
His body of work generally spans varied mediums and concepts. However, all are an inspiration mix of astronomy, mythology, nature, and physics.
