The artist was born on the edge of the Sandhills of Nebraska. First art attempts were the faces of fellow students from school photos. After graduation, the artist attended 1-1/2 years in Chicago at the American Academy of Art and worked in a design studio.
The first scratchboard picture completed was "the crying woman". This is the third rendering of the picture. Every time a new rendering is made, the eyes are the story.

In a world that vibrates with vivid hues and brilliant tints reflected by nature and perceived by the eyes, the artist works in a world of shadow and light to depict graphically detailed work.
The subject becomes trapped in a splinter of time and is captured on scratchboard with a technique that is uniquely the artist's own innovation.
This premise appeals to the eye with images frozen in realism.
