​Born in Minnesota, as a young man I traveled to England to attend Heatherley School of Fine Art, to improve what was then merely a hobby, and to see Europe; 34 years later I returned to my home country and now am based in Oregon.

I am a member of the Royal Society of Marine Artists, in Britain, the Watercolor Society of Oregon, and the Miniature Society of Painters, Gravers and Sculptors of Washington, D.C. My work has found its way into collections on every Continent except, as far as I know, Antarctica. One of my Watercolours has been included in "Splash 13," and two of my Drawings have been included in "Strokes of Genius: 5" & "Strokes of Genius : 6;" this last coming out in Autumn of 2014.

For most of my career I have been a painter of quite detailed Watercolours. Recently, however, I have begun a Painter's Odyssey into the Wild; going back to basics with Oil as my exploratory medium, and painting in a looser manner. My 4-wheel drive SUV has become my studio and the lonelier parts of the Pacific Northwest, and sometimes beyond, my Muse. Much of the work being produced on this journey is here offered for auction so as to continue my explorations. Please do come along; visit my Blog and enjoy the Journey.
