When I was about 12 years old my father, who was a stonemason, built a fireplace for an artist named Bill Freeman. Part of the payment for the work was 2 paintings, one of which hangs in my home. Since that time I have wanted to become and artist. However while serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in southern California I saw many starving hippy artists. I decided to go into another field of work and put art on the back burner. I became a stonemason and plyed my artistry heavy duty style. My stonework can be seen in Zion Park, at the Grand Canyon North and South Rims, the St. George Town Square and the Washington County Library and many, many homes throughout southern Utah.

A few years ago I started painting watercolors to illustrate life stories I was sharing with my children for Christmas gifts. I decided on watercolors because it doesn't stain or make a mess in my carpeted "guest bedroom/studio". I have since fallen in love with watercolors.
