I can't remember a time when I didn't love to draw.
When I was a kid, I told everybody, "I'm going to be
an artist when I grow up!"
They thought it was just a phase I was going through.
Well, if it was, it's been one heck of a long phase!
As an adult, I've never done anything else. I was
a working commercial artist, graphic designer
and illustrator for 45 straight years, until I
retired in 2001.
In what little spare time I had, I painted in watercolors and later,
at age 55, I began painting on my computer using Corel Painter
and Adobe Photoshop with a Wacom Tablet.
I found this system was great for digitally painting
my illustration work.
Now, in retirement, I do "fine art" in Painter and
I've been featured in Corel Painter
Last year, I sold a digitally painted illustration to
The Saturday Evening Post.
These days, I keep myself busy playing with art
techniques and being active in several online art groups
