"I love what I do. I've done my best to create a personal style influenced by my artistic heroes. I think I'm as close as I could get to this and I am the happiest I've ever been with my art.”

Sadie & Clive - Pencil & acrylic 11 x 14 in.

"I have been drawing since I was 10.  I have taken four years of Commercial Art, one year of Technical Illustration and a year at the Dayton Art Institute. 

I had stepped away from art for a while because of the progression of life, a job, a son and maintaining a home. I still tried to maintain a studio of sorts but it was difficult to keep at it. Then a lifelong friend asked me to do a few things for him on cigar box guitars he was building and before I knew it I was right back into my art again and better than I had ever been before. I had finally found my style after years of experimenting with all kinds.

And thanks to that I’m in the happiest place in my life so far.”
