“I am a native of Carlinville, Illinois. While in Elementary School I was interested in drawing and art and was the ‘class artist and teachers assistant’ with art work for the classroom.
In High School I became interested in architectural drawing which led to my architectural education at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale where he earned a Masters Degree in Education in addition to an Associates Degree in Architectural Technology.
My career includes practice of architecture for more than 25 years. My teaching experience of more than 40 years includes St. Louis Community College at Meramec, SIU Carbondale, Washington University and Ranken Technical College.
Interest in art evolved into a passion for oil painting. I have studied art and oil painting for more than 8 years at the college level and I am currently working with subject matter that includes scenes around the Illinois and Missouri area along with scenes from global travel. I specialize in, but am not limited to, landscapes.”
In my retirement I am teaching oil painting at St. Louis Artists’ Guild and at the Stone Soup Galleries. I am also a resident artist at the Stone Soup Gallery. Information for my upcoming class can be found below.
