Biography


 
One day early  in our marriage, while at one of the art galleries my wife and I enjoyed, I said that since we could not afford to buy a painting, maybe I could make something that we could enjoy.  Of course, my wife said "Then do it!".  Well..., after throwing a few things in the trash, I finally came up with a geometric wall sculpture and three paintings that we enjoyed hanging on the walls.
 
Finally, we were able to purchase a painting and the gallery offered to come to our home and hang it for us.   While there, the gallery owner asked about the other pieces we had on the walls.  After finding out that I made them, the owner asked me to bring in 5 or 6 pieces into the gallery and they may be interested in selling my art.   That was in 1992.  The gallery was Copeland Fine Art Gallery of Columbus Ohio, and I became a popular resident artist for the gallery until 2008, when the gallery closed due to the owner retiring.  Now I am with the Rue Colline Gallery in Griffin, Ga., and online.  Recently, I was invited and have joined ArtNuances out of London.
 
That's when and how I started.  I have enjoyed experimenting in a number of different media... now including the development of digital fractal images.  Lately, I talked with another artist who said that maybe I should concentrate on only one media and develop perhaps a series.  Maybe... but my mind still takes me in many directions.  I don't want to change!!
