“I grew up in small towns and rural areas of Ohio and Western Pennsylvania. Much of my time was spent doing farm work, hunting, fishing, trapping and looking for arrowheads. In times of difficulties I found nature and farm work to be a great solace and inspiration. Much of the subject matter of my work is drawn directly from my rural experiences.
For the past twenty years I've lived and kept a studio in the inner city of Youngstown, Ohio. My studio and apartment are located adjacent to Mill Creek Park, a 3 thousand acre inner city park of old growth forest, waterfalls and lakes.
A wide range of animals live there, including fox, deer, turkey and bald eagles. It is as though one steps backs in time 200 years when visiting this place. Having a studio located on the edge of this fantastic park has been a great blessing in my life.
