As a young man I realized I would have to work for everything I wanted in life and wrote;
"Artists thrive only when a culture is advancing.
Artists are intellectuals and idealists by nature,
scientists and engineers by trade,
craftsmen and artisans out of necessity."
These next picturers manifest the truth of those words. I have had two careers, one working as an artist for two major newspapers and a small 2-color printing company. And for the last 30 years as the owner of a tile and marble installation company. Being an artist to the core, my skill has afforded me the opportunity to work as far away as Australia. This Marble was cut to mirror the pattern outline of counter top overhang. Only the color of the marble changes, the pattern continues unbroken. Everything you see on my web-site was done by my own hands, including building the web-site. Completion, Fall of 2011.
