Since graduating with a B.F.A. and M.F.A. from Ohio University, I have been an Artist/Illustrator in the Air Force, a Graphic Designer, a High School Art Teacher and a Professor of Art at Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan. I am now a Professor of Art, Emeritus after teaching art at Calvin College for 31 years. My art has been in many competitions and local, regional, and national exhibits over the years. The thematic approach of all my art I call Jauntin’, which I define as “A life journey, full of creative adventures, glorifying growth and wonderful surprises.” The joyful, improvisational nature of Jazz music is the main metaphor I use to express this theme which includes expressions of life journeys, environmental discoveries, fantasy, faith and jauntin’ adventures. In my computer drawing I have a fantastic freedom to create visual images beyond the mundane into mystery, incongruities and other dimensions. I always try to draw just enough to say more.
