I grew up in Orion Township and graduated from Lake Orion High School. I Attended CCS in Detroit for 4 years. Worked as a mechanical illustrator and automotive catalogue retoucher in various agencies and studios for over 40 years. Specialty also in portraiture and landscape painting. After two heart surgeries in 2002, I worked part time. Retired in 2007, after having three brain surgeries within seven and one half weeks, followed by a stroke. Experiencing health issues has given me a new outlook on life, and compassion for others who are suffering similar conditions. I am blessed to be able to continue to paint, draw and sculpture in my retirement years. My 2014 ArtPrize entry, "Council of Men" was voted "TOP 25" for the 3D category. My 2015 ArtPrize entry, "Moses", was vote "TOP 25" for the 3D category. I have been married to Brenda for over 48 years, have 2 grown daughters, 2 great sons in law, 7 grandchildren who range in age from 22 down to 13. I have lived in Clarkston, MI for 40 years.
