Hello to all you nice people! Here is a little information about me.
Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA USA. i'm married with one son.
Moved to Tidioute, PA in May 2003. Got sick of big city life and moved into the sticks of Northwestern Pennsylvania to a tranquil and quiet setting. I live next to the Allegheny National Forest in Warren County, PA.
My love for the outdoors and nature has inspired me to create wildlife and rustic landscape artwork in the forms of wood burnings (Pyrography), pastel paintings, oil and acrylic paitings.
There are so many beautiful scenes of Pennsylvania that can't be seen from the highways and roads as you travel. I wanted to share these sights with you in my paintings.
All my paintings and drawings are available for sale as an inexpensive print so please check out thes site where I sell the prints. Copy and paste into your browser.

I am a self taught artist and am still learning every time I pick up a brush, pencil, pastel, or burning pen. Please follow me in my journey and check back on a daily basis.
Thank you for viewing and reading.
