David was born in Prince Edward Island, Canada. 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 4 and a great passion for art. Since then, painting has always been an integral part of his life.
After a move from Kilkenny, Ireland, where he lived in a L’Arche community, helping people with intellectual disabilities, to Lubbock, Texas, David worked as an Adjunct Professor in the Texas Tech University School of Art.
David is now a Ketchikan resident and lives here with his wife, Lisa, and son, Liam. You may find David out beachcombing for unique pieces of driftwood that he likes to use as his canvas.
