I'm a product of the west, born and raised in rural Utah. I received my inspiration from the natural beauty of the mountains, high deserts and abundant Wild life found there.
After being educated as a draftsman I became an Illustrator/photographer in the U.S. Air Force. For the next 21 years I was fortunate to live in many foreign locations and have an exciting life and rewarding career producing Art work for many luminaries in the military and diplomatic world, all the while pursuing my passion for fine art after hours.
After retiring from the military I became a full time fine artist and made my living selling my work on the art festival circuit and through a number of art galleries.
My work has been purchased and sold through the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Pheasants Forever, the Rocky Mountain Mule Deer Foundation, The American Paint Horse Foundation and Ducks Unlimited.
I have been featured in two coffee table style books, Artists of the West and Wildlife Artists of the World.
I am currently working in the exacting medium of colored scratchboard, portraying a variety of wildlife and domestic animals.
My Wife Virginia and I have been full time RVer's for the past five years, spending our winters in southern Arizona and Mexico and summers in Star Valley, Wyoming.
