I'm a retired disabled Army veteran. I entered the Army as a Private First Class in 1983 and retired as a Brigadier General in 2018. A primarily self-taught artist I work mainly in scratchboard, which is considered one of the most difficult art mediums. I've also started to work in charcoal and silverpoint. Silverpoint is an artform that is also extremely difficult and was used by the Masters during the Renaissance. My work has appeared in art shows in Virginia, California, New York, Arkansas, North Carolina, and Florida. I presented my work in a solo show held at the historic Malco Theater in Hot Springs, Arkansas. I was jury-selected as 1 of the 15 Emerging Artists in Tampa and featured with others at the Gasparilla Festival of the Arts in 2022. I love dogs, am married, and have a daughter and three grandchildren. All of my artwork is a one-of-a-kind original.

If you do not feel some level of emotion in my work then I have failed as an artist. I use scratchboard as a fine art vehicle to evoke the full range of emotions in viewers. Much of my work captures the impacts of famine, genocide, war, and human rights. Several of my pieces depict the most respected humanitarians and former leaders in the world. My artwork of icons in music, literature, movies, and sports brings smiles and happy memories to people. In sum, I want people to remember how they felt when they viewed my artwork.
