Welcome to my web site
To truly appreciate any discipline you best become an active participant. As a would be artist I have used several different media, studied multiple artists, and enjoyed the talents of my peers. My wife, Kay, who had been taking lessons for sometime before I "retired" was instrumental in getting me involved in the discipline of painting and associated activities such as; travel, photography, and study of art history. Through out time art has provided a venue for individual to express themselves and project their persona.
Most of my "formal" training was via excursions to painterly locations under the tutelage of Johnnie Liliedahl. My wife and I have made painting journeys to St Croix, Scotland, Island of Kaua'i, and two trips to France.
As an individual I appreciate and enjoy nature. As an artist I endeavor to perceive and capture the essence and beauty of nature.
" Art is man's attempt to imitate the beauty of the Creator's hand."
