Introduction I'm a semi-retired award-winning, internationally published freelance artist and illustrator who has created thousands of works of art for books, magazines, greeting cards, websites, and countless other publications over a long career. I had hoped when I retired to just happily fade into the background and the simple life. The plan was to continue to do volunteer art projects with the National Park Service and maybe do some other volunteer work alongside my wife. And maybe also find time to paint, sculpt, and create other art -- but just for art's sake. But after becoming my wife’s cancer caregiver and then losing her to the evil disease, my life was turned upside down. So now, in honor of my previvor daughter and my beloved late wife and muse, I'm now dedicating most of my time to being a hereditary cancer awareness and prevention advocate.
Interests Art, science, history, nature, and collecting old things.
Favorite Music classical, jazz
Favorite Books Far too many to mention here. (I have close to one thousand books in my personal library.)
