About the Artist

It is tough to describe me, let alone my art work. I will give it a go anyway.

The Very Early Years

My accomplishments have always been unconventional using the creative force to do even simple things in a different way. It’s a rush to see what develops. I was positively influenced by Mother Nature in my early years. Our family moved East and West when I was young so I experienced a great expanse of beautiful countryside from the blue hills of Kentucky all the way to the breathtaking tropics of Hawaii.

I was always doodling as a kid and often got caught drawing pictures in classes. (That was probably not the best idea I have ever had.)

The Productive Years

Because of winning numerous art awards early on I started producing everything from corporate art to showings in galleries across the USA. Many paintings were bought by enthusiasts from around the world. Sizes ranged from 8" x 10" up to 8′ x 8′, as commissions dictated. I decided to get some Art Education and took a few college art courses, and ended up graduating from San Diego Airbrush Academy. These were fun, experimental years!

Then my wife and I moved to San Diego from Northern California and adopted two babies. Somewhere along the way a combination of unforeseeable events occurred, including a slump in the economy, which forced numerous galleries across the country to fold. At that point I chose to temporarily hang up the brushes and dawn the monkey suit. I didn’t forsee that business successes in the corporate world would last for several years.
