I have been involved in creative arts for as long as I can remember.  I began taking studio classes in drawing and painting in Gainesville, Florida in 1985.  I continued classes in drawing, oil, and watercolor painting in Fresno, California.  My latest works have embraced the encaustic medium almost exclusively.


I am a practicing musician and continue to perform professionally in the United States and Europe.


I currently reside in the the Pacific Northwest with my wife, three dogs and a cat.
