For years I've done illustration for publications and gallery art (oils, watercolors, acrylics, etc.) The illustrations have appeared on everything from bus benches to ads, in magazines, tv spots and on gift products like coffee mugs, shirts, greeting cards and wall decor prints.

The humor work has been the most popular and most widely published,inspired by growing up on a farm around tale-spinning great uncles and a menagerie of interesting critters.


Living in the western US for years, many of my paintings were of a western nature. Leanin' Tree Greetings based in Boulder Colorado began publishing my work in 1980, favoring the humorous subjects.

I am focusing on nostalgic and country lifestyle subjects.

I live with my wife Carol, nine dogs and two cats in beautiful rural Aiken County, South Carolina
