About the Artist
I graduated with a degree in art from the University of Texas at Austin and spent the next 30 years writing and producing videos for some of the nation's leading corporate and educational institutions, including USF&G Insurance, The U.S. Postal Service, the State of Virginia, Texas A&M University, and the University of Texas at San Antonio.
Now, I've gone back to my artistic roots. My college training was in printmaking, and I'm pursuing a passion for creating wood block prints. Much of my artistic subject matter comes from my other passions, hiking and backpacking. The images you see in my work weren't taken from magazines and travel brochures. They were collected by me on my excursions into scenic Texas and other beautiful places.
I carve my original blocks by hand from various woods and from linoleum, depending on the needs of the particular image. I then ink the blocks and pull the prints, one at a time, by hand. When the ink has dried, I title, sign, and number the prints. All my images are printed and matted on high quality art paper, insuring longevity and the best possible appearance.
I live in San Antonio, Texas, with my wife, Diane, and Smudge the Cat. Diane and I have two grown sons, Nicholas and Christopher. Both work in creative fields.
