Graduated from the Kansas City Art Institute. Worked as a graphic designer for Xerox. Was vice President of Colanco Color then owned a graphics company call Macgrafix Design. My clients were Bayer, Intervet, Merck, Saks Fifth Avenue, Beach Aircraft, Pfixer and others. Began painting in earnest 25 years ago and have won numerous plein air painting awards.
