From the Artist:
"I am originally from Moline, Illinois and have lived in Kearney, Nebraska with my wife and family for the past 25 years. Most of my career has been spent in healthcare; however, the last several years I have worked as a Career Management Coach, assisting individuals to return to gainful employment following separation from their company.
I received a minor in art from the University of Illinois and since that time, I have continued exploring and refining my art technique. I specialize in oil paintings and occasionally work in acrylics and watercolors. My love and passion are using art to bring out personality in the portraits that I create or to capture moments in time. I have created several series which include Old Towne Kearney series, Civil War portraits, Aspens in Colorado, Sandhill Cranes, and commission pieces, including portraits and childhood homes, to name a few. Art is my way to reflect the world and life around us, eliciting a sense or an emotion that often tells a story within the painting."
