PEN & INK
I grew up in Northwest Detroit and now split my time between Livonia and Oscoda, MI. I am married to Vicki, and we have two cats.
As a child, I took some art classes at the Detroit Institute of Art. But, basically, I am self taught. My style of drawing began in High School using the black BiC Cristal pen which was readily available for doing my schoolwork. My drawings have a lot of fine detail, and this pen allows me to do the shading the way I like.
I took time away from drawing to work full time and raise my family; but since resuming it about five years ago, I have completed over 300 drawings. I am a realist. My work is sometimes mistaken for photos. I like people to take the time to really study them and appreciate the detail that goes into each drawing.
I am a member of three local Art Clubs in the Metro Detroit area; and I enjoy entering Juried Art Exhibitions. I have participated in some of the Art Fairs in Northeast Michigan including Harrisville Harmony Weekend where I have won Best Of Show twice. I also like to display in Galleries.
In my spare time, I enjoy jet skiing, snorkeling, and kayaking
