I live in Wisconsin with my lovely wife and a house-full of miniatures and paintings. School took me to Philadelphia, New Haven, and New York where I felt very fortunate to be able to explore the art scene in the northeast. My education was in the fine arts of painting and printmaking, and I received a BFA from James Madison University in Virginia. After my years of slavish dedication to the craft, this afforded me an illustrious, but short-lived career in restaurant work after college. An employment-upgrade took me to Chapel Hill, North Carolina where I assisted in the daily operations of Somerhill Gallery. It was a privilege to also absorb the growing arts culture in the south.
I began to focus primarily on miniature painting in 2008. I try to never forget the solid visual foundation I received from my formal education, but I enjoy the fact that this creative work is a hobby that can be explored outside the context of the "fine arts".
