I picked up the creative bug years ago after realizing how much I enjoyed sketching, which started on vacation while cooped up inside waiting out a particularly long, intense rain storm. Shortly after that trip, I took my first painting class at Laguna Gloria in Austin, Texas and quickly became addicted to the creative process. 

My art subjects tend to reflect my life’s passions, most commonly landscapes explored while traveling with my wife, experiencing the great outdoors, or fun with our dogs.

My preferred medium is oil, but I enjoy sketching as well, so there are the occasional projects based in graphite.
