I was raised on a Dairy Farm in rural Michigan. My first encounter was wood working, and carving for my own enjoyment, as well as profit. I entered the Army at age 18, and was stationed in Germany. After being honorably discharged, I attended Art School on my G.I. Bill. I graduated with degrees in Illustration, and Painting. I worked as a commercial artist in Grand Rapids for over 18 years, and went into portrait painting full time. I read quite a bit, usually History, and I appreciate reading about the various artists throughout time, and their techniques. I enjoy photography.
