I’ve loved to create things since I was a small child. Ideas come to me in many ways which I put into a physical form. Since moving to this beautiful area my artistic endeavors have expanded into various areas. My latest interest has been with Mother Nature, such as rocks and various types of wood. My wife also has ideas from her dreams that I transform into art. She is my main inspiration and supporter. I started painting seriously in the 90’s and am mostly self-taught. In the past, my art has been in watercolor, oil, acrylic, and pastel. My preferred medium is pastel as the colors created from it are rich and the blending is fantastic, however, I am excited to wander into new modalities as I expand as an artist. I have won many awards in the Pacific Northwest and enjoy communicating through my art.
