Biography


 
 I have painted since I was a child but never on a sustained basis. In fact I never referred to myself as an artist because I spent so little time painting.  Many longtime friends didn't even know that I painted. That changed in October 2015, when at my wife's urging I opened my doors to the public after many years painting in a cramped and poorly lit home studio.  My present light filled studio and gallery sits atop the seven story McClure Building overlooking historic downtown Frankfort, Kentucky.  Once a commercial icon, the 1906 McClure Building has tall ceilings and large windows  that provide the perfect setting for the inspiration to paint and a perfect gallery space to hang paintings.
  
When I entertained the idea of opening a new studio, I wondered what would happen if none of the paintings sold.  Fortunately the buying public has been very supportive of my work and I am very thankful. It has also been fun because I have met so many wonderful people.  My only regret is that I didn't open my studio sooner!
 
I have long been inspired by the beauty my home state.  Central Kentucky is to me one of the most beautiful places in the world.  
I never tire of riding the country roads seeking my next subject.  I use both oils and acrylics and most of my paintings, with a few exceptions are from scenes very near my home.
  
I have studied under Bill Fletcher, an exquisite painter and teacher from Nicholasville and Lexington KY, and to whom all of my success is attributed.  Not a day goes by that I don't read, study and view as much art as possible.
 
While I keep irregular hours at his studio, I am available to meet and visit with anyone who would like to stop by.
