I was born in the wheat fields of Kansas and have always had a bit of a verve for art. Drawing plans for ant hills in his youth to poster design as an adult. A consent lurker at libraries, galleries and yard sales… just to have an opportunity of seeing, finding and learning more about art… any type of art. However, I would say that folk art, primitive cultures, naive and outsider art have made the biggest impact on me. I like the raw vivid expressiveness of it. It is art with true meaning and has a devotion to honest emotions in the mind of the maker. I try to bring that same kind honesty to life in my work.
