In my life-long passion for creating art, I am inspired by the varied natural beauty and rich history of
the Pacific Northwest.  I have enjoyed many years hiking, climbing, skiing or backpacking in some of
the Northwest’s most wild and scenic places.  Now, through my landscape and seascape paintings, I
enjoy telling stories of my outdoor adventures.

Growing up in Northern Iowa I often had a pencil, sketchbook and paints in my hands.  I enjoyed
creating art of nearby farms, windmills and tall grass prairie.  After college and service with the Navy in
Viet Nam, I was fortunate to live, work, and paint in Switzerland, Germany and Australia.  In 1985,
I settled with my family in Oregon where I worked as a project manager for the Bonneville Power
Administration in Portland.

My sketchbook and paints continue to be constant companions in my travels and on the trail.  
When I’m not painting
en plein air,  I enjoy painting while my wife, Jean, creates beautiful
award-winning quilts in our home studio in Oregon’s Cascade Mountains.  Jean also reproduces my
paintings on greeting and note cards.  We are truly an artistic team.

Collectors in the US and overseas have acquired many of my paintings.  I am a member of the
Watercolor Society of Oregon, Northwest Watercolor Society, Lake Area Artists, and  
Wy’ East Artisans’ Guild.   My original works of art are included in the permanent collections of
Timberline Lodge, Oregon (National Historic Landmark) and the Oregon Health Sciences University in
Portland.

Let’s discuss your special commissioned watercolor painting! You may also contact me about the
availability and prices of Jean's exceptional quilting.
