The Atlanta-based artist has shown his artwork in multiple art galleries and festivals throughout Atlanta and his artwork hangs in commercial buildings, restaurants and in private collections. Enjoying a 30-year long career within architecture and interior design firms has influenced how Strawbridge’s incorporates line, form, space and composition. Working mostly in acrylics, grease crayon, and graphite on canvas, his art has been described as architectural, minimalistic, abstract, and sometimes even, whimsical.
