Todd recieved his BA in Fine Art from Lynchburg College in Lynchburg, Virginia in 1980. From that time on he has operated a sign business where there has always been a fuzzy distinction between "sign" and "art". In recent years, he turned "serious" in his pursuit of fine art and opened a studio in Orange, Virginia. Todd has worked in oil and watercolor but now works in acrylic for its versatility and permanence. He has sold hundreds of prints and originals. Favorite subjects include the railroad, scenes from the town of Orange, Virginia landscapes, Williamsburg and beach scenes from Nags Head, North Carolina.
