Greeley, CO


Hola and Welcome!

I started painting and drawing when I started my art education at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, Colorado. I taught at Valley High School (Gilcrest, Colorado) in the 70s. After that, I moved to Madrid, Spain where I taught drafting and architectural drawing part-time for Central Texas College and full time for the Department of Defense, Industrial Arts, 1st thru 8th grade. In the early 80's I transferred to Okinawa, Japan. In Okinawa, I taught grades 1-12 in a variety of areas: Photography, Industrial Arts, Painting, Pottery, Sculpture, Wood Working, Commercial Arts, Graphic Design, Industrial Technology and a number of other areas. The best part about these jobs is I was paid to do what I love! Now that I am retired, I continue to learn new things and pursue my art. I am enjoying doing lapidary, jewelry making, stained glass, water color and whatever else comes along.

I have been fortunate enough to do a lot of traveling throughout my years working overseas. On this web page you may stumble across work I have done in Okinawa, Japan, India, Phillipines, Hong Kong, Korea, Taiwan, China, Spain, Germany, Potugal, Tangier, Morocco and who knows where else. In retirement, I have been enjoying being a tourist in the United States of America - we have visited Chimayo, New Mexico, Utah, California and other stops along the way. I can't wait to add new things to this site.

Arts, Crafts & Things webpage provides a way to share and sell my artwork at a reasonable price, along with other merchandise. It is great that I can do this in the comfort of my home and enjoy retired life. I can share my artwork with all over the World!

And guess what - You do not have to leave your home to spend some time checking out what I have here.

I hope and believe something will catch your eye! Perhaps you will purchase an original painting or photograph or a Giclee Prints (pronounced "gee clay" ). Maybe you will like one of my works, be it a photograph, limited print, custom/commission work, a family photograph restored, or something else to brighten your day.

So again ~ E Komo Mai (Welcome in Hawaiian) to my page and enjoy!
