Hi, my wife and I moved to Tacoma, WA  after spending over 30 years in Alaska. We decided to move some place where it didn't snow 9 months out of the year. I've been drawing ever since I can remember and painting for around 25 years. I paint a variety of subjects, including wildlife, portraits, still life, and cartoon work, but sci-fi and fantasy are by far my favorite. I usually work in oils and acrylics. Oils are my favorite medium because they are so forgiving but I also work in acrylics, watercolors, pencil. For the most part I'm self taught but I have attended a few classes throughout the years to fine tune my own style. For inspiration I like to look at works by Frank Frazetta, Brom, Michael Whealan, Sebastian Kruger, the Hildebrandt Brothers, John W. Waterhouse, Adolphe Bouguereru, and Lord Leighton to name a few. I hope you enjoy viewing my work. Several pieces have been sold in galleries and over the internet and I also work by commission. I like Painting, Drawing, Reading, Writing, Photography. Favourite movies Aliens, Pitch Black, The Chronicals of Riddick Favourite books Anything by George R. R. Martin. Favourite music Classic Rock, Blues
