I have been painting since the early 1970s.
After a career as a reporter, the Press Secretary for a US. Congressman, newspaper editor, public relations executive and chief information officer for the City and County of Honolulu, I now paint full time.
My interest focuses on color, texture, mood and mystery. I believe they must all be present for a piece to work.
Born in Coldwater, Michigan, I lived in the state for over 40 years. In the early 90s, we moved to Honolulu, Hawaii, for six years. We discovered after a while, that 84 and sunny was a little boring, and wanted to go back to the, "real world."
I now live in Colorado, half way between Denver and Boulder, with the beautiful Front Range of the Colorado Rockies looming out the windows.
