have always been a "full-time"
image maker beginning as a child. Since graduating with a B.F.A. and
M.F.A. from Ohio University, I have been an Artist/Illustrator in the
Air Force, a Graphic Designer, a High School Art Teacher, and a
Professor of Art at Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan. I am now a
Professor of Art, Emeritus after teaching art at Calvin College for 31
years. My art has been in many competitions and local, regional, and
national exhibits over the years.
The thematic approach of all my art I call Jauntin’, which I define as " a life journey, full of creative adventures, glorifying growth, and wonderful surprises." Jazz music is the main metaphor I use to express this theme which includes expressions of the Blues, fantasy, dreaming, surprises, life journeys, and jauntin’ adventures. The joy, hope and faith of an exciting Christian life inspires and shapes the images and ideas of my computer mediated drawings and photographs.
I call my compositions Pictojaunts : A joyful picture journey. On this journey, I attempt to express visually with my drawings and photographs the sounds and energy of the ideas as well as human hope, faith and incongruities in our life adventure with unique symbolism and images of transmogrification .
Computer Mediated Drawing- The images are drawn with a magic stylus on a mystical drawing board, appear on a computer monitor screen, travel into another dimension, and re-enter this world through a color ink jet printer. The computer is an art tool that sets my creativity soaring and allows me the freedom to attempt exciting possibilities of image and idea in my expressions.
Limited edition color prints are signed and numbered in editions of 48 in various sizes. The art is printed with an Epson 1520 Ink Jet Printer at 1440 DPI on 100% rag, acid-free Rising Stonehenge Art paper (heavy weight), and other art quality papers.
