Professional Resume: I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1944. I graduated from East High School in 1962. I attended the University of Utah. I began painting early in my life. I experienced some success in my young adult years. I had one-man shows at Utah’s Pioneer Memorial Theatre and at the Cottonwood Mall in 1963-64, when I was 19 and 20. I then moved to Reno, NV. where my work was exhibited and was purchased by the then-Nevada Art Gallery. In my early twenties one of my paintings was chosen for exhibition in London. Although I kept painting, I put aside the professional pursuit of art to raise my growing family, working full time as a pipe-fitter and later in my career as a mechanical designer. Two and a half years ago, at age 60, I retired, and have now returned to the full-time pursuit of my art. In 2006 I became a member of the artists’ co-operative Art At The Main (Main Library in Salt Lake City) where my work is exhibited continuously. In 2005 I became a member of Utah Artists. (I was the featured artist for September, 2005). I am also a member of Artists of Utah and the Intermountain Society of Artists. In my efforts to join artists in Utah’s art community, I have received gracious help from the Utah Arts Council. Awards ?
