Bruce lives in San Francisco and has a studio at Hunters Point Shipyard and currently gives workshops in both plein air landscape and studio still life painting. He paints in a representational, but impressionistic, style and focuses on landscape/cityscape, still life and figure. He shows his work at the SFMOMA Artists Gallery, at STUDIO Gallery and Arc Gallery, all in SF. He also has several Open Studios shows at the Shipyard throughout the year.  Check out Bruce's website here.
