About Me

I was born in Detroit, Michigan and raised in the suburbs. I had an itch that would turn me into one of those people who move far away.  I started to explore outdoor activities that took me to Montana State University in Bozeman. Here I indulged my love of art and the outdoors while I worked toward my BFA. My career in commercial art ended when I decided to pursue fine art and teaching full time. Now, I am a regular instructor and workshop leader specializing in drawing, watercolor and knife painting. I am also a board member at the Oregon Society of Artists and am involved with regional arts organizations. I am a regular participant and often award winner in plein air and painting competitions.



I have been a lifelong artist. It is something I have always done and is so much a part of me. It has literally formed the way I Iook at the world. No matter what the scene, I see it as shapes, color and proportion. I am always aware of how these combine to form our perception of the world. I am inspired by the beauty of the world around me. Nature, people, the built environment are all one and, in my art, I try to bring them all together with creative expression.




Technique or style, painting or illustrating, commercial or fine art. I cannot keep them straight anymore. I used to finish a painting then wreck it, then finish it then wreck it until it was finally done. Or at least, I was. Now I am more economical. I think it best to finish work the first time. I strive for expression, accuracy and freshness. How I get there is a combination of restraint and indulgence.



Career highlights

For about 20 years I owned and operated an art studio that provided analog support art for advertising and public relations. I had the privilege to work with many fine photographers and art directors and clients including Nike, Tektronix, Mentor Graphics, Freightliner, Stash tea and Microsoft. Now, I want to get my best art out intro the world.
