I studied watercolor as a boy. I then studied oils for four years as a young man in New England.
I earned various non-art degrees and concentrated on raising our family earning a living as a teacher, an inner city High School Principal and later as the CIO of a large public organization.
In the nineteen-eighties I began experimenting with the then emerging digital art forms.
I taught “Digital Tools for Artists” and “Electronic Painting” at The Art Student League of Denver for seven years after I first retired. I now work as a full time artist.
Among my permanent installations is a sixteen-piece commission for the corporate collection at Delta Dental national headquarters.
I work in oil, inks, archival pigment prints, mixed media, and sculpture.
Nine Dot Arts, Art Consultants (http://www.ninedotarts.com), Denver, represent me on my commercial sales. Their site can only be accessed by the trade.
My work is characterized by themes that interest me.
I spent years documenting the urban landscape of Denver in a series of more than 120 Archival Pigment Prints entitled Inner Mansions ®.
An Archival Pigment Prints series entitled Rivers Run includes over 40 pieces of the many rivers I have paddled, floated and rowed.
A series of works in Oil and Archival Pigment Prints capturing Colorado farms and ranches met with considerable success with audiences.
I also spent time in New Mexican Pueblos documenting and interpreting what I saw.
My Current Available Work
For the past eight years I have been working on a series of Ecological Landscapes; drawing inspiration from images on the Web, Google Earth Landsat, NASA and various other sources as inspiration to describe my growing concern for our fragile planet. When appropriate, I request permission.
Some of these are now posted in my "Paintings" Gallery.
I live in Colorado and draw inspiration from the people I meet, the West and Southwest, and from my travels. The pieces presented here represent only a portion of my portfolio. Watch this site for my other artwork or E-mail me regarding your own art interests.
