About

Hi. How are you this day? Welcome to my shop. These are all my Original Oil Paintings.

How long have I been Oil Painting?

I started as a boy in Sylmar, in The San Fernando Valley of California,sending my drawings to an Art School. One day a man came to my house and wanted me to continue drawing and studying. He said he saw talent in me and that I had Commercial Talent. So, I continued on for awhile with the company he represented till out of High School where I also took a 700 hr. Art Studio/Drafting Course.

I was the eldest of 8 children. For some years I lived with my Grandparents, spending much time in my Grandfather's Woodworking Shop where I developed a love of woodworking and would develop that into starting my Custom Cabinet Shop in Oregon, that eventually 3 of my brothers…

Hi. How are you this day? Welcome to my shop. These are all my Original Oil Paintings.

How long have I been Oil Painting?

I started as a boy in Sylmar, in The San Fernando Valley of California,sending my drawings to an Art School. One day a man came to my house and wanted me to continue drawing and studying. He said he saw talent in me and that I had Commercial Talent. So, I continued on for awhile with the company he represented till out of High School where I also took a 700 hr. Art Studio/Drafting Course.

I was the eldest of 8 children. For some years I lived with my Grandparents, spending much time in my Grandfather's Woodworking Shop where I developed a love of woodworking and would develop that into starting my Custom Cabinet Shop in Oregon, that eventually 3 of my brothers joined in, including my brother John, also an Oil Painter, worked making Cabinetry primarily for new homes.

Before my Cabinet Business I joined the Army at nineteen and served in Viet Nam, sometimes visualizing myself drawing and painting back home. I think now that my time in Asia comes out in my paintings of Asia and a love of the ocean where I enjoyed surfing and upholstering boats on the beach in Newport and Huntington Beach upon my return while also attending Community College.

My wife and I enjoy expressing the gifts within that we all possess in one way or another. Our four children, between us are living their lives and here we are in Florence, Oregon, where my wife and I met by fate. The Custom Cabinet Business has undergone transition after the passing of my parents recently for the business was located on their country property. After a life-changing experience, fate intervened again and my wife encouraged me to devote my week ends to painting. It became a daily want to do after work each day. I have time now to focus on Oil Painting.

From time to time Custom Wood Work presents itself again. I'm presently not offering that in my shop, devoting that time to painting. Now My wife and I have time for walks and exercise, caring for our home and giving more attention to our corner of the world, another canvas for us to develop. My wife had 3 cats and now we have many more who found their sanctuary with us, started their families with us, giving us much love and attention and now 13 years have passed.

Currently, I'm painting large surfer waves, 5 ft. long, in fact, I shall be back in a few hours to continue on my Ocean Series. Summer's just beginning here on the Oregon Coast...and so the ivy grows and I'm called outdoors as well to do what I can. It's just the way it is and we are happy.

I have always loved working with my hands and feel my gifts lie in that direction. In college, after Service, I studied Architectural Drafting and 3 Point Perspective. Besides ocean waves and seascapes, I also enjoy restful landscapes and most anything that inspires me such as what you see in my Etsy Shop.

If you'd like me to paint your dream, I would be happy to accept a commission for you. Write to me with your idea in words and/or photos.
