About Artist

Thanks for wanting to take the time to find out a little bit about myself.
I am an artist /illustrator living in a world between Kansas and Oklahoma. Just think of wide open plains, lots of cattle, wheat, corn, and canola fields.
I live in a tiny rural town surrounded by open fields as far as the eye can see. Most mornings, looking out the front window or back patio of my home, I am visited by tiny bird friends and their squirrel buddies frolicking under the pine and acorn trees.  Across the street is a tiny field of goats.
Oh and goats! I do love goats.

Through the years, I have developed my own style of doing things. I use acrylics, pencils, watercolor and pretty much whatever else it might take to get the final look.

Life is pretty interesting. I never started out to be an artist. In fact, I am still trying to figure out what I want to be.  I work during the day as a graphic artist building ads for newspapers. My personal artwork is usually created late at night or over the weekend when I have the time. I have been drawing and painting since late 2004.
