I am an artist, a woodland steward, and a story teller. A tree responding to water, air, light, and earth is a sustaining element in my work. I am influenced by how trees live. My primary artistic medium is ink wash on paper. I splash, flood, and brush pigment over the surface. Suggesting mystery in the imagery is as important as introducing detail. Each viewing provides unique experience.
I was born in Casper, Wyoming and lived my early years in the Wind River Basin. My father worked on the oil pipe line so our family moved often. In 1970 I graduated high school near St. Louis, Missouri and was drafted in the Army to serve with NATO in Europe. During the two years of active duty I was introduced to and began a lifelong pursuit of art. This has taken me around the world adding up many adventures. Currently my wife and I operate Point of View Bed and Breakfast in Harpers Ferry.
