Simply Art Studio

After retiring from a long career in real estate I pursued my love for art through acrylic and alcohol ink painting. I love the flow of acrylic pouring and the one-of-a-kind results. A variety of methods are used in my art designs and I am always exploring new and interesting ways to influence my craft.
In addition to canvas painting, I also design ceramic coasters using the same techniques. They are all coated with resin to help maintain their beauty and added protection.

I hope you enjoy viewing my portfolio of original artwork. should you have any questions or would like
to discuss a special order, please feel free to contact me.

Simply Woodworking

Since I was a small boy, my father taught me how to work with woodworking tools. From that young age, I knew my love for woodworking, and working with my hands was my calling. Through the years, I learned to do many wood projects through home restoration and furniture building.

Later in life, I achieved my Bachelor of Science degree in Metallurgy and Mechanical Engineering, which helped improve my problem-solving and design skills. Throughout my 44-year career in specialty steel, I continued to enjoy woodworking on the weekends.

Now, in my retirement, I own a small business, partnering with my wife who is an artist, making wood items and pieces combining both of our art to make unique wood and art pieces.
