I am a former Chef and Culinarian of 20 years, but have always carried a passion for drawing.  While having pursued Liberal Arts College for only one year, I continued to sketch, never abandoning my first passion and bringing what I learned from the kitchen and applying it to a different palate.

 

I believe expression of art, on a plate or canvas, offers creativity, captivation, and emotion.  A majority of my artwork has stemmed from the deceased with most of those being family pets.   I hold much empathy for the tragedy and loss I see, and wish not to take advantage of other's shortcomings, but instead provide closure, perhaps memories, some peace of mind, and maybe a little hope for what's next with the art I create for them.

 

Currently, I am a stay at home dad and artist with focus on commission work and art community involvement.   I am the Secretary and Chairman of Demonstrations for the Colorado Springs Art Guild, and current Curator for Southern Colorado Veterinary Internal Medicine Specialty Hospital and have completed over 90 commissions since starting professionally in December of 2013.
