This is a painting of my 2-year-old twin grandsons.

Artist Statement
Art for me is more than paint, easel, and a brush. It’s more than a career. Art for me is a life choice. I have always been creative and even from the time that I was a young child, I don’t ever remember a time in my life where I didn’t want to be an artist.

My career has spanned well over four decades, first as an illustrator in the United States Air Force, then a long career in corporate aerospace art departments. In 2010, after twenty-five years as Chief of Visual Services for the Department of the Army, I decided to leave my position so that I could pursue my lifelong dream of painting full-time.
