I am a traveler and a gypsy who has settled in WA state. I studied commercial art and painting at Ohio State University, but went on to raise a family and work in computer programming until my early retirement due to the late effects of polio. I am now in a wheelchair and spend my days writing poetry and short stories. I began painting again a few years ago in an attempt to illustrate my children's book, "A DOLPHIN NAMED ZEPHYR", caught the bug, and have been dabbling in paint along with my wordcrafting, ever since. I live on the fifth floor of Artspace Everett Lofts, in Everett WA with my partner of 16 years, Janie Whited, and our two cats (of course).Janie is a fantastic artist and I am pleased and gratified that she has allowed me to use two of her paintings as cover art for "LOVINGS" and "TROUBLED DREAMS".
