|Dave is mostly self-taught and has worked with oils, pastels, acrylics and watercolors. His preferred medium is watercolor. He likes the transparent and delicate quality obtainable in this medium.

He takes part in the various shows like the Boulder City Fine Arts Festival, Wine Down Wednesday, and Winter Fine Arts Festival. Results of these shows are many fine art pieces owned by collectors nationally and internationally.
Before coming to Boulder City, Dave was a member of the Palo Alto Art League and Triton Museum of Fine Art. He had numerous corporate shows in California as well as fine art festivals throughout California.
