I did some painting and line drawings as a kid, but stopped in my early twenties. Later when I retired from a long career in computer software, I discovered the world or digital 3D art and 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. I volunteer at my church providing needy folks with food, clothing, and job search assistance. We travel as much as time and wallet will allow!
I don't get to post a lot here any more due to time constraints. I REALLY appreciate the many great artists here who have been SO wonderful to me, giving encouragement and pointers. PLEASE drop a line or comment or just say "Hi". I appreciate your words good or bad: It energizes me and keeps me growing - and keeps me going.
