Meet David J. Simpson
"Before the Storm"
I was born and raised in Ocean City and now my wife Cristina and I currently own the very house I grew up in. In 1999 I reconnected with the art world at Salisbury University, where I achieved both a philosophy degree and a fine arts degree in painting. The subjects in the oil paintings I create traditionally are focused on the human figure, landscapes, and seascapes. Most recently my paintings have focused on the elements of texture, color, and light via seascapes.
In the spring of 2012, I graduated with Masters in the Art of Teaching from University of Maryland Eastern Shore. I am showing work locally at community art organizations, winning awards, and teaching private lessons. In addition, I recently became a board member for the Worcester County Arts Council where I currently hold the office of Treasurer. As an adjunct professor, I am thoroughly happy to be able to professionally contribute to the promising art community at UMES.
Making art and promoting the growth of the arts in our local community is something I truly believe in.
