My career started in the 50's as an airbrush artist, graphic designer, art director, wildfowl painter and sculptor. For the last twenty-two years I taught decorative bird carving. Returning to my first love, painting birds, my canvas is now a computer screen, capturing each brush stroke with a stylus on an electronic tablet in a graphic file. A gicl'ee printer with archival paper or canvas and inks gives this fine art print that not only captures the image, but also my life-long learning and ability to portray each bird as a beautiful, realistic experience. In the 80's I had the honor of being accepted as a member of the first national, Robert Bateman Master Class, which I am thankful, for it shaped the style and approach for my work to this day.
