After employment for 30 years as the Art Director for Sunset Outdoor Advertising Company, later renamed Pacific Communications, Inc., of Seattle, I resigned in 1970 to devote full time to western art.  Since then I have sold 600 original oil paintings to individuals and collectors, not including art prints made from some of the originals. 

My original interest in western art was sparked by my hikes throughout the Northwest mountain and ranch country with my father, who owned a sign shop in Wenatchee, Washington, on the Columbia River at the edge of the North Cascades Mountains.  He was an amateur gold prospector in his spare time, and I joined him on such forays as early as age 10.  To this day I enjoy mountain hiking and gold prospecting.  I wanted to create the spectacular mountain backgrounds I enjoyed and to commemorate the pioneer life of isolated ranchers, explorers, mountain packers, miners, and the Indian tribes among which I grew up.  My studio on a viewpoint overlooks a 270-degree panorama of snow-covered peaks of the North Cascades Mountains and ranches in the valley below.  Deer regularly mooch grass from the lawn and flowers from the garden.  Occasional cougars and black bears roam the immediate area, even though the small village of Winthrop is a major visitor destination.  From our patio grouse make raucous cries from the shrubbery and whole families of tiny baby quail march across the driveway after their mothers.  Two years ago a cinnamon bear explored my garage when the door was left open.

As early as high school, I was encouraged by my art teacher to pursue a career in art, especially after I won a Washington state high school art contest.  I was influenced strongly by the works of Charles Russell and Philip R. Goodman’s calendar art.  During high school I worked every day with my father in his sign shop and learned that skill thoroughly.  Our family spent some winters in Los Angeles, where my father painted stills for the movie industry.  After high school I studied briefly in Los Angeles at Woodbury School of Art and Hollywood Art Center but left because the curricula stressed mostly abstract art at the time.  I worked thereafter with my father for four years and expanded our art offerings to include illustrations, as well as signage. 

During my years in Seattle our company supplied art for major concerns such as Bon Marche, Frederick & Nelson, Society Candy, Pepsi Cola, and others. I painted a portrait of Ronald Reagan for use in his campaign for California governor. During the Seattle World’s Fair I painted three huge murals, each 28 x 32 feet on interior walls of a Seattle Center building.  Eventually I started to market some of my western oil paintings on the side and, as mentioned, resigned to do western art full time and supported my family solely from art since then.
