I've been drawing my whole life but it really wasn't until I got to the point where I could retire from my business that I felt I could entertain the thought of spending more time drawing and sharing my artwork with others. My background is Architecture and I graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in Architectural Design and spent 29 years as the owner of an business in Architectural Illustration in Houston, Texas. I enjoyed the work and my clients were satisfied with the work I did.
Several years ago I moved from Houston to the Texas Hill Country and I am certain this is the place I will live out the rest of my life. My property is a gathering point for my species of wildlife, and they provide the subjects for many of my colored pencil drawings. Wide expanses of wildflowers, deer, wild turkey, birds and soaring hawks. I am surrounded by the majesty of my Central Texas home and wherever I go in the world, it's always Texas that calls me back.
I've always been of the opinion that if you can find your passion in life, you can find lasting happiness. I find my passion in trying to capture brief moments of time on paper and I find happiness in sharing my passion and enthusiasm for life with other people.
Art is created. It is not manufactured and to own a piece of artwork is to share in the life and experience of the artist.
