Tell us a bit about yourself: Did you go to school for art? Are you self taught?
Mostly self taught, but come from a long line of artists, my Dad was my early teacher.
I have taken college classes in figure drawing and a couple watercolor classes, and recently have studied with a local retired art prof.
What inspires you / where do you get inspiration from?
Driving around in the beautiful countryside can inspire a landscape, or watching the antics of animals may inspire a cartoon drawing, but often my cartoons come directly out of my head and I usually don't have a clue what triggered them.
Do you work in just one medium? Several?
I do work in several mediums, for landscapes and still life oils and acrylics.
For my cartoon images, I usually sketch them old school on paper with pencil, then scan them and color them in either Adobe photoshop or Corel Paint. Occasionally I draw on a Wacom Tablet.
What are you working on now?
Right now I am doing commissioned Xmas card designs, one of a sock monkey rock climbing and another of snow shoe rabbits both cartoon and realistic.
Anything else you want to tell everyone?
I love the variety of working in various styles and mediums, maybe that makes me hard to "Brand" but that's how I work best.
Are you an early riser?, or night owl?
I'm an occasional insomniac so I may be up at night, reading or sketching, and if that's the case I'm not up early, I guess. I have an irregular schedule, but since I work at home this works for me. Love waking up and brewing strong coffee to get my motor running.
What is your favorite food?
So many, its hard to narrow it down, my Mom was Danish and made the best breads, and crepes....so crepes with fresh peaches as filling.
