I took art classes in high school and always enjoyed drawing and painting. Upon graduating from high school, I enrolled at BYU as an art major. After one semester, I decided I needed to find a way to make a living and ultimately graduated with a degree in accounting. During my business career as a CPA and as a commercial land broker, I put art aside, other than occasional visits to art museums and shows. In 2001, I received a set of oil paints as a gift and did a painting. Over the next several years did one or two paintings a year. In 2017 my wife and I moved from Fallbrook, California to St George, Utah. While I still do some consulting, I am now essentially retired and am able to pursue art as a passion. My medium of choice is oil painting. My favorite subjects are people ... and I prefer portraiture .... but I will paint anything that moves me. Recently, I have embarked on a series of portraits of homeless persons living on the streets of San Diego. I desire to capture the essence of their humanity, irrespective of living conditions. For me, painting people is most challenging and most rewarding. I am blessed to be able to pursue the challenge!
