My Bio
Been drawing and painting since I was a wee lad, mostly dinosaurs and dragons in those early days, but moved on to enjoy landscapes and the human figure as well. Started playing music at 15, but didn't start a band till my late 30s. I'm a sound engineer and have gotten back into art using Vue and Poser. Started with those two programs in 2006 after playing around with the first Terragen for awhile. I still paint once in awhile, but have become obsessed with digital creation for now. Oh well. You can check out to hear the music and see the studio. Thanks for your interest.
