I did some art as a kid, but stopped in my twenties. When I retired from a long career in computer software, I was able to scratch the itch again. I use Carrara 8.5 Pro and Daz Studio for composition and rendering, and Fireworks and Photoshop for postwork and textures. I'm more of a storyteller than an artist: I like creating (and viewing) scenes that tell a story -- or strongly suggest one.
I live in Sacramento, California USA with my wife. We soon will be "empty nest" - we're actually looking forward to that LOL!. I volunteer at my church providing needy folks with food, clothing, and job search assistance.
I appreciate the many great artists here who have been SO wonderful to me, giving encouragement and pointers. PLEASE drop a line or comment on my gallery. I appreciate your words, good or bad: It energizes me and keep me growing - and going.
