Biography- not written in third person

I create life sized (or larger) photo realistic drawings of subjects laboriously executed with graphite on Mylar. I choose common everyday people, saddles, skulls, vegetables or utilitarian objects that he finds intriguing in their complexity. The drawings focus attention on minute details that may be overlooked, the fold, the scratch, the flaw, no characteristic is too small to replicate. This extraordinary attention to detail and significance behind those characteristics requires looking deeply into the history of an object to discover what makes it’s experiences relevant.

Born in Texas, I received my BFA from TCU (‘79) and MFA in sculpture from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia PA (‘10). Following my career in the National Football League (1980-86), I turned my attentions towards creative vocations including Museum Curator, Graphic Designer and Exhibit Designer for zoos and aquaria and finally fine artist in 2006. Some of my design work includes exhibits for zoos and aquaria in Antwerp and Taiwan as well as for US Aquaria and Science Museums. I exhibit my fine art nationally and my work is held in corporate and private collections. I was the recipient of the 2013 Hunting Art Prize.
