Artist and award winning design educator
I taught basic design, color theory, architectural design, graduate design and competition studios at Oklahoma State University, Texas A&M University, and University of Illinois for 40 years... I was mentor for over 150 international and national design competition winners during those 40 years.
In December of 1999, I retired from design education and moved to Provence in southern France to concentrate all of my time on my Art. In 2010, I was visiting my daughter in Lincoln, Nebraska, had a stroke which wiped out my left side and put me in a wheelchair probably for the rest of my life which suddenly seemed much shorter. A return to France was out. Now living/working in Joplin MO.
The 2010 stroke burned all connections to my left side but, boosted my creative side. Not a bad deal for an artist.
I decided to concentrate my remaining time creating digital paintings rather then spending weeks making each new acrylic painting. This website illustrates the digital paintings I have done in 2017-18. I’m addicted to creating art and intend to create new work until death stops me. Keep checking this site.
