I am a self-taught artist except for a few art classes I recently took at Clackamas Community College. I graduated June of 2012 and received my Certification in Graphic Art and Web Design. I started drawing and painting at a very young age and was inspired and encouraged by my mother to draw and paint every day.
Wildlife and animals of all kinds are often the focus of my paintings. This painting of the tiger is acrylic. I also enjoy Photography and will often take many pictures on the frequent trips my wife and I take to the beach and the mountains. Often ideas for new paintings will result from these many excursions that also include the zoo, bird refuge areas and the many local gardens in the northwest.
I am constantly working on new projects. Since attending college my projects include writing and illustrating children’s books and the graphic design of company logos, advertisements and websites. I welcome any interest, requests or commissions in any of the various creative fields I work in.

I hope my artwork brightens and inspires your day.
