- Sell Art
Born to working class family in rural Oklahoma, learned to draw during an extended illness over a two year span as a child. Studied art in high school and one year of college. Dropped out of college when I lost my deferment after lottery numbers for military draft were drawn. Played guitar and sang for several years in a rock and roll band. Got a job as a steelworker, continued painting and playing guitar for my own amusement. Started painting in earnest and selling my work in anticipation of looming retirement from steel work in the near future. Because I always kept my day job I was free to paint things that were of interest to me and to develop a distinct vision and style.
