After receiving a BFA in Advertising Design from Memphis College of Art, David worked as an Art Director for several advertising agencies in Memphis & Little Rock AR.
In 1987, David began his own Graphic Design company in Collierville, TN. For 30 years his company provided marketing & design services for various clients from agricultural chemical & seed companies, to the manufacturing and service industry.
“In the late 60’s I lived with my mother in the French Quarter of New Orleans. She was a portrait artist on Jackson Square. I began painting while attending high school in New Orleans, and working in a frame shop after school. While working in the frame shop, I got to know many different artists that lived in the French Quarter. That early art environment in such a unique place was a valuable asset to my art career”.
David is an avid fisherman and often incorporates that love into his art. His art studio is in his lake cabin in North Mississippi.
