About the Artist
I can't recall when exactly or what it was I began to draw first but know it was very early in my life that I would spend hours alone drawing and painting, dodging the boredom of school and the normal day to day activities required to survive growing up the youngest of three boys in a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom home. As I moved into my adult years I continued to draw and paint every chance I had. No matter where I was or what I was doing all I really thought about was painting. Morning, noon and night I would watch the light play on all the elements surrounding me. Even while sitting by the fire with friends under the light of a full moon sky I would find myself secretly working out the complexities of a duotone landscape. I saw everything as a painting, the objects, colors, shadows, mid-tones and highlights and how all of those color spaces would play off each other on my imaginary pallet. Like it or not I was an artist, I was born to it... I knew it and I embraced it.
I'm grateful for the chance I had at being an artist. It has opened up opportunities I could only have dreamed of as a young man. I have seen many things, been many places and made so many wonderful friends over the years through my art and know now it was a special gift to have been given the opportunity to experience it... and I keep that gift very close to my heart. I sincerely hope all the work I have done in my life has in some way inspired people to spend more time outside – to visit our national parks and to fall in love with art, America and all her history.
