I was born in Des Moines, Iowa in 1951. I grew up partly in Iowa and partly in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado where I developed a love for the outdoors.
I have been interested in drawing or art of some kind as far back as I can remember, but I did not have the opportunity to study art seriously until after I retired from the Navy in 1993. Using my GI Bill, I went to college and received a BFA in Graphic Design. My real interest though was simply in painting. I experimented with several different mediums before being introduced to Pastels by my very talented sister. I instantly fell in love with the medium.
I am of the firm belief that we should never stop learning so even though I don't know where my art will...
