Born in Grand Rapids, Michigan but moved to Southern Illinois in the early 60s. I am a self taught artist. I can remember having a pencil or crayons in my hand at all times growing up. I enjoy doing landscapes especially capturing old buildings such as old school houses, old barns, and old churches. I enjoy using acrylics but oils are my true love. I teach acrylics and hold painting classes out of my home. I’ve painted for over 30 years but have gotten more serious about it over the last couple of years since retired.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, children and grandchildren, and animals.
