about me...

I have been an artist and educator for over 40 years, holding degrees from

the University of Missouri-Columbia, the University of Illinois and

the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I also studied at the School of the Art

Institute of Chicago, the University of Chicago and the Rochester Institute of

Technology. After a 30 year career teaching studio art and art history in the Wentzville,

Missouri school district, I currently teach at St. Charles Community College and

Maryville University, usually spending the summers teaching in Europe. My wife and I

live outside St. Louis where I work on genre paintings inspired by quiet observation.
