FINE ART

I have a creative mind that needs stimulation.  That creative mind drove me to find outlets as a child and drawing was its first release.  I started drawing very young and quickly realized I had a love and affinity for the activity.

I started with the helicopters and jets that flew over my childhood home on Lake Belton.  Then I discovered comic books and super heroes became my muse.  As I grew up, my stepfather, a master watercolorist,  further fostered my knowledge, skills, and interest in art.

After a career in restaurant management and aviation, an 8 year go in the Army, and several years in various Universities in a wide array of subjects, I was finally afforded the opportunity to make art and design my livelihood.  I most recently spent 2 years at the University of Houston in the painting program, which helped to solidify the skills I had been building all of my life.

My inspirations are Edward Hopper, Fredric Remington, James Gurney, Watt “Bill” Dozier, and William McNamara (to name a few).  I tend to sway towards the American Realism movement, nature, and suburb life when I am looking for inspiration.

I would be happy to hear about your project to see if I can help.  Take a look at my portfolio below and submit a quote request or email me to get your project started!
