"As a young man I always enjoyed drawing and painting. I intended to make art my career.
Well as life normally plays out I took a different career path and had not painted for almost 30 years.
Then in 2008 my wife wanted to take me to Santa Fe to see the Art Galleries and I was truly amazed at all
the wonderful pieces of art we saw there.
Inspired by our trip, we returned home and I immediately enrolled in a sculpture class;
I created a horse with a saddle, No Posse In Sight.
By completing this piece my passion for art has come back.
I continued training under my mentor Scott Rogers.
It has been an incredible journey back to what I once left behind and working in this medium is such a joy.
I can only hope that I can bring the Old West, the way I see it, into someone's life for them to enjoy.
Follow your passion and enjoy life."
