I was raised in Anchorage, Alaska and have lived in the Southwest for the last 30 years. I began painting with oil pastels in 2006 when my son gave me a set for Christmas with a note which said “Draw me a picture Dad”. Once I picked them up, I never put them down. I began showing my work in juried art shows and exhibitions in 2012.
In 2015 Scottsdale Museum of the West acquired my painting “Lake Powell: The Ramp” which has been on exhibit since the museum opened. It was their first acquisition.
In 2018 I was selected by Savior-Faire/Sennelier to be their Official Oil Pastel Artist. I am the first and only person to hold that title. Savior-Faire is the exclusive North American distributor of Sennelier products.
My “wife for life” Margie and our two Australian cattle dogs, Flash and Buddy, live a peaceful and prosperous life. God is very good to us.
