Bio: Prior to trying my hand at canvas painting four years ago, I had been involved for thirty years or more in carving and painting birds and wildfowl. With this endeavor came the knowledge of mixing and blending color. I have been involved in photography most of my adult life and that I believe gives one an eye for light, contrast and color. With a clear mind and steady hand I hope to continue that witch brings me pleasure.

Mediums: Since I have always used acrylic paints on my carvings I continue in that medium. While water color intrigues me I have yet to venture there.

Why do you create art?: I have been driven by art and design my whole life. Through the fifties into the nineties I designed and built Custom automobiles, some published. I designed and built custom furniture. Photography for most is a way of capturing images of people or events one wishes to save for future viewing. While that holds true me I like to manipulate an image with focus, light and contrast for the sake of art. It all brings me a sense of accomplishment.

What inspires your art?: A strong feeling to create images in the minds eye.
