Born and raised in the Sandhills of Western Nebraska. Moved to Honolulu, Hawaii in 1971. Began painting seriously around 1979. Primarily figurative painter focusing on the male nude, with some attention paid to portraiture, abstract and landscape work. Stylistic approaches range from abstract to expressionist to impressionist to realist. Over the past 35 years, has shown his work more privately than in galleries, partly due to the nature of his work: male nudes tend to be shown and sold privately. Currently dividing his time between Lincoln, Nebraska and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
