My degree reads BS Metallurgical Engineering, the practical choice. I probably should have given the visual arts a try right from the git-go since I’ve been a doodler all my life – finger paints, crayons, pencil, etc. In any case, I worked in the steel industry for 36 years, retiring in 2001. Preparing to retire, I began art lessons at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. That’s when I began doodling in earnest.
After moving to Taos in 2007, I was in a gallery for a while but realized that doesn’t work for me. I prefer establishing a personal relationship with my buyers. So, I sell my work directly to collectors.
I believe an artist is usually better off not talking about his artwork. The
work should speak for itself; you either like it or you don’t. I am essentially a studio painter working in oils with a palette knife, usually on wood panel. My paintings tell a story, incorporating the history, cultural diversity and natural beauty of northern New Mexico. Often, I strive for a light-hearted feeling.
