A life long resident of Lancaster, Ohio, my vocation and my avocation has always been art. I am a recently retired art instructor(40 years) in the Groveport Madison School District. I have been a a watercolorist for 30 years. My undergraduate work is from The Ohio State University, my masters degree is from The University of Dayton. I have participated in additional training at the Columbus College of Art and Design, Capital University and various watercolor workshops.
My wife, Mary Anne, is my framer and business organizer. She keeps us going. We have two wonderful children- a son who is a practicing attorney and a daughter who is a graphic designer. My children have spouses who add to our lives. A daughter-in-law who, with my daughter, founded "Milkmoon Kids". A son-in-law, a high school science teacher, shares many of a lifetime's work with me. I am blessed with three wonderful grandchildren- a testament to all of our children. I am a lucky man.
