His work is filled with light and shape, bold colors and evocative subjects. You may have seen it around, since he’s done prints of towns in the Mid Shore, as well as other locations.There’s nothing shy about his work; it’s bold, graphic and visually stunning, reflecting both a background in the graphic arts and a lifetime of observation.

One of the All-Time Great Parties by Roger Vaughan
Tidewater Times was established in 1952 as a specialized monthly magazine which would appeal to the tourist, the prospective land buyer, and others for whom the Eastern Shore has a special allure.
