I am an eclectic two dimensional artist. I especially enjoy pencil (colored and otherwise), pen and ink, scratchboard, but also work in acrylic, oil, watercolor and pastel. My subjects are wide ranging too, with favorite subjects being animals and birds in the realistic arena. More recently I have been involved with exploring combining the subconcious with the skill of the artist hand, and have developed a system of "zoning" out and allowing art to emerge that I do not consciously plan or create.
An elder in the field of the arts, I have taught classes through university level, exhibited widely, illustrated throughout the nation, and am an award winning book illustrator.
My purpose in the arts is neither fame nor fortune, but to find an inner peace while pleasing my patrons.
