David is an Iowa native, now living and working in Mesa, Arizona. He attended Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids and received his BFA from the University of Iowa in Iowa City. David has been in group exhibitions at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City and the Des Moines Art Center.

David approaches his subjects in a traditional manner, painting in a realistic style that concentrates on the way light defines an object or space. His landscape works are inspired by both the drama and serenity of the western vistas he sees near his home as well as secluded roads and wide-reaching fields of rural central Iowa.
