Although a native born Hoosier, I lived and worked on the southern Oregon coast for most of my adult life.  Upon early retirement, I relocated in Nashville.  Knowing at the time Nashville was Indiana's premiere artist's colony, little did I realize at the time that I would eventually become one of the local artists.

 

The subjects I choose for my art have primarily been native North American birds, but future work will include a selection of mammals as well.  The drawings I create are a combination of archival ink and pencil.  They are comprised mostly of very tiny dots; tens of thousands of very tiny dots.  These drawings are on aspen wooden vases and sculptures which I also make.  For durability, these drawings are  trapped between multiple coats of satin spray lacquer.

 

I might also mention that I credit the late Bill Zimmerman, (Indiana's most famous bird artist and Nashville resident), as the one who provided me with encouragement to pursue bird art, as well as giving me multiple detailed lessons on bird morphology.  Regrettably Bill never saw any of my later work; only my first, and very primitive attempt at drawing birds.
