I have been a full time fine artist for the past 18 years, prior to that time I studied under various artists in both the United States and Europe.
I completed a career in the Air Force as an artist/illustrator and 'dabbeled' in the field of fine art for many years. My artwork is in collections throughout the world and I have participated in hundreds of shows and exhibitions all over the western U.S. My work has been purchased by numerous organizations such as the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Pheasants Forever, Rocky Mountain Mule Deer Foundation, etc...
I was recently featured in the coffee table book 'Artists of the West', and I will be featured in the upcoming book 'The Best of Worldwide Wildlife & Animal Artists'. I am represented by several galleries throughout the western united states.
