|While growing up in Southern Illinois and since moving to Arizona in 1984 I have always drawn and painted for my own pleasure.
During my primary and secondary school years I studied art in school and took private lessons. During college I took watercolor and commercial art classes while studying architecture.
I try to paint and draw places I have been. Sometimes I pull images from my imagination and memory and build them into something I find interesting.
I have been working in architecture for 40 years and have finally returned to the thing I have always wanted to do.
