I was born in Utah in 1940, and have always known, even as a child, that art would play a major role in my life. My love of travel, exploration, and studying all forms of art has been the basis behind my works. I am a published author, musician and artist.
I attempt to exemplify my use of abstract form and gestures with detailed realism as a means of communicating emotion and thought. I have a strong belief that meaning is conveyed through our languaged reality. Detail and vivid colors personify my style.
After graduating, I spent over 10 years, traveling and studying throughout Europe and Asia. I am a self-taught artist and continue to explore all uses of various medium (Oil, Acrylic, Pen & Ink and Digital) as used by artists around the world.
One of my most productive periods was in 1996/2003 when I produced over 235 painting ranging from abstract and surrealism, to photo-realistic art.
I continue to produce my art while working on another book (soon to be released) titled 'A Stage for Awareness'.
