Around my 7th or 8th birthday I remember receiving a paint-by-number oil painting kit. I took the lid off the small plastic container of paint eager to begin. Seeing so much paint left on the lid I picked up the first thing I saw to scrape it off. Instead of transferring the extra paint back into the little tub, I began to apply it to my canvas board with a "loaded toothpick". Needless to say, I was fascinated with the textural effect and proceeded to patiently paint the entire piece using...yep, toothpicks! Also, I grew up enjoying Walter Lance create images of "Woody Woodpecker" during those early animated TV programs. Years later, our high school began an art program as I entered my sophomore year. I fully intended upon graduation to continue with this as my college major. After two years attending Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, IL I picked up on other Christian endeavors, but always took my art (in various forms) along, too. Though not a prolific artist, I've enjoyed every piece of work. Oils, acrylics, watercolors, and photography make up the majority of what I've done. Somehow, it seems, if God can put it in your heart, He can put it in your hand. All along He's been my Master Teacher.

I am married to my lovely Pamela since 1974 and have resided in Lincoln, IL , USA since 1978. We have two grown daughters who live nearby. All of them are filled with the joy of expressing their creativity. Thanks for visiting for awhile.
