I was born in Crockett, a town in east Texas in 1948. I graduated from Texas tech University with a BS degree in 1971. I have been married to my wife Elizabeth since 1972 and we have three children, and seven grandchildren.

I have always loved to draw ,paint and build things. My career as a commercial artist has given me the opportunity to apply my love of these to projects across the country. I also have always had a love of fine art painting, and have practiced my hobby in this field as long as I can remember. Now that I have reached a level life where I have more time to expand and pursue this side of my art , I paint all I can with the goal of making my next piece my very best. I am an artist, it is what I do, it is what I think about, it is what I love.
