Artist Statement:
When I was young, I wandered the small forested areas near where I lived. I loved my discoveries of fallen trees, fox dens and secret ponds in the forests along the river that flowed through my town.My imagination went wild. I saw large areas of wilderness filled with all types of wild animals and wide oceans with beautiful sailing ships.
I am still a child at heart. Through my paintings, I am still sailing the seas, exploring western mountains and hiking the trails of northern forests. I am fortunate to live in an area abundant with forests, streams, farms and the large waters of the Great Lakes.
I am now sharing my time between the Midwest and Arizona. I’m enjoying painting quite a few western themes that remind me of the time I spent in Arizona during 1970-72.
