While serving in the Peace Corps, David lived in Ethiopia. His travels and his interactions with the Ethiopian people have served as a lifelong source of inspiration for his figure studies and landscapes.
David is well known for his three-dimensional views of major American cities. This series, which includes Boston, Chicago, Lower Manhattan, New Orleans, Philadelphia, St. Louis, and Washington D.C., has earned him international recognition.
More recently, David has created architectural sketch coloring books of New York and Philadelphia, which include line drawings of iconic landmarks of these two major cities. David has also authored a coloring book of the Borough of Narberth, depicting life in small-town USA.
Prints of David’s watercolors are available at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, along with puzzles, postcards, and mugs that display images of his work.
