Miscellaneous

I was born in Mississippi and grew up in Alabama.  I have always enjoyed drawing and painting.  Some of my earliest memories are of finger painting when I was four and five years old.


After retiring from a 29 year career in telecommunications I began painting more seriously by attending portrait workshops and other painting classes.  I have also recently begun classes in graphite.  I once thought that drawing in graphite was the ultimate artistic endeavor, but I have since realized that every medium offers its own challenges.  My two passions now are portraits and miniature paintings and I have had miniature paintings accepted in several juried shows.
