I live in rural western New York State and became interested in history, Americana, antiques, and nature since childhood. Our area is rich in early frontier settlements, old barns and homes, farms and fields, the country life.
I have been interested in art since I was young taking all the drawing and painting classes possible in high school, and majoring in art at college. I taught art for 32 years and retired 12 years ago.
My paintings and drawings in my art gallery reflect the history of our nation, the quaint country lifestyle from our past, along with Americana genres.
My artwork has been on multiple covers of the National Muzzleloading Rifle Association’s publication MUZZLEBLAST, as story illustrations in Muzzle Loader magazine, and also featured on several Facebook groups as the cover art. I’ve had painting in Country Living magazine and featured in several galleries in years past. I have done art shows since the early 1980’s but took a very long break when our kids came along. Now that they are both grown and I am retired I have once again taken up my artwork.
I don’t get involved with art shows anymore so simply display and sell my work through my website and promoting on Facebook.
I hope you enjoy my work in my art gallery and feel free to contact me with questions or about doing commissioned works. I draw or paint daily so please check back often to see what new creations have been posted.
