I was born in 1946 and raised in Southern California. As an art major, I am a self-taught cartoonist. My wife Marie and I were married in 1977. From the very beginning we worked together from my studio in our home to present my artwork through exhibits, festivals, and private showings. We have two sons, and after graduating from college they are now pursuing their own careers. We have lived in Newport Beach, California since 1980.
I always dreamed of becoming an artist and striking out on my own. Back in 1974, I was full of energy and restless while working as an illustrator and Art Director. I decided to leave my job to pursue what I love doing best, making people laugh at themselves. Over the years I found that by drawing and painting everyday situations with a humorous slant, I learned about the funnier side of life in this high-tech, fast paced world of ours. At the same time I was reassured by the people I met that good, clean, old-fashioned humor never goes out of style.
I continue to express my humorous philosophy through painting and experimenting with various shapes, colors and techniques. My latest works define the human condition by depicting wildlife with titles that speaks to our positive side. With the help of our customer’s wonderful suggestions, I am constantly creating new work, always looking for original ideas. My acrylic paintings, limited edition lithographs and giclee’s are displayed in private and corporate collections throughout the United States and abroad. So as you look through our website we hope you will enjoy the humor and maybe, just maybe you will see somebody you know…
All of the characters seen on this website are my own creation. A little redbird appears in each painting as my trademark. The giclee’s sold through this website are printed by me to ensure that all reproductions are of superior quality.
Keep Smilin’ and keep in touch.
