My exposure to art came from books, Art Appreciation, and trips to Art Institute in Chicago, where viewing works of great masters left a lasting impression that would influence my life.
While carrying my camera on sales trips, and wanting to learn more than by trial and error, I decided distance learning was the solution and took a 2 year course with Canon and a 3 year professional track with the New York Institute of Photography.
Friends introduced my wife and I to Clayton, Georgia and suggested I check into “Celebrate Clayton”, where I met wonderful folks from this Guild that encouraged me and my still fragile ego to show my works.
I now produce art print giclées for artists, portrait studios and a sports memorabilia company. I very much enjoy being a “collaborative artist” in the creation of fine art. My subjects tend to be peaceful landscapes, lakes, beaches, flowers, and horses. I now present my work exclusively on canvas as I like the look, ease of care, and options to enjoy it without a frame.
My work is available at Greenleaf Gallery, Clayton, Dream Givers Gallery, Toccoa, Old Country General Store, Smithville, and Hightower Creek Clydesdales in Hiawassee.
