Biography


Art for me is a relational activity involving the people and places that intersect my life.....my loving wife (Mary).....two wonderful daughters (Kate & Christine)....our extended families....our family of faith....the family of artists at the Waverly Artists Group....and the many others that I am blessed to know and learn from....My family has been in North Carolina for over seven generations, and I have spent my career here as a small business owner and professional engineer. I played music and sports, but never had an interest in painting or drawing.In 1991-92 I attended some oil painting lessons with my daughter to keep her company. I enjoyed the classes more than she did and I promised myself to someday pursue painting more seriously.
