I remember I began drawing around the age of three. I continued drawing and painting all the way through school. In Junior High, I started a watercolor sketchbook and in High School, my parents saw my talent and enrolled me in a commercial art correspondence course. After graduating from High School, joined the Navy as an illustrator Draftsman. I had all the art materials and time to work on my own projects after work. After the Navy I went to an art school in Seattle for a year, and then enrolled in Art Center College of Design as an illustration major.
After graduating in ’73, l joined an illustration/design studio in Newport Beach. I continued on my own as a freelance illustrator for a few years, recognizing the world of print media was changing, so I began transitioning into fine art. Just after the millennium, I started taking a watercolor class, finding out about watercolor on Yupo. About this time I joined Southern California Plein Air Painters Association. I also joined Orange and San Clemente Art Associations. Around 2007, I joined Laguna North Gallery and Mission Fine Art Gallery. After a few years I have begun concentrating more on oils, doing mostly plein air and some studio work during the pandemic.
