He started painting as a hobby in his late teens. Recently, he has been a full time artist for more than twenty years. Prior to focusing full time on art, he was a Professional Engineer for more than 26 years.

He started painting in oils in 1966 but fell in love with the acrylic medium in 2003. Most paintings are created with acrylic paints on stretched canvas. Many recent paintings are richly textured, acrylic mixed media on stretched canvas.

He is also an avid photogragher and loves to create digital art. Photograghy and computer graphics provide a creative source for many of his paintings.

He has taken many art courses through the years. These include courses on drawing, watercolors, acrylics, portraiture, landscapes, picture framing and computer enhancement of photos. Instructors were Frank Haddock, Kathryn Hines, Izabella Orzelski-Konikowski, Cindy Barratt, Penny Eliuk, Catherine Marchard and others.
