  • About the artist

    I was born in the American mid west mid twentieth century. Growing up on the outskirts of Cincinnati I spent a lot of time making stuff and exploring the woods. Making art is some of my earliest memories.

    The music and culture of the late sixties and early seventies had a big influence on my art and reading. During this time of liberation and enlightenment I began to study the painter's materials and methods using libraries and museums. The physicality of the craft of painting began to take on an importance that is the driving force behind how I paint.

    By 1980 I was working free-lance with uninterrupted periods in the studio interspersed with hitch hiking and backpacking. I spent over a decade doing seasonal work as a raft guide and kayaking in West Virginia. 

    In 1994 I moved to the South Side of Chicago with my partner. I have a house with a studio and garden across the street.

    I feel very fortunate to be able to paint full-time.
