About

MB-profile pic

Short version: Husband. Artist. I draw & paint wildlife, people, pets, horses, birds, land, sea, air, trains, land & seascapes. Paintsville, Ky native.

Longer version: I live in Mobile, AL with my wife, two cats, 2 dogs, and an inordinate amount of books, movies, TV shows and movie posters. I have been told (by my wife) that I could have been a cat-whisperer just like Jackson Galaxy (we are big fans); the only difference between J.G. and myself is:

  • Galaxy has a bunch of tattoos
  • a shaved head
  • a goatee-sort-of-thing going on
  • and a guitar
  • Oh, and an Animal Planet hit TV show

Otherwise, she says I’m just as patient with their fur-balls. I’m told that I am a fairly decent impressionist, able to pick up on vocal mannerisms and speech patterns almost instantaneously. I’ve also been told that I am a definite step up from Rich Little, and I almost rise to the level of a Frank Caliendo.

I can whip out an edited video in iMovie with aplomb. I’ve drawn, painted, sketched, and crayoned almost everything I can get my hands on, since about age 3, including canvas, paper, illustration, and walls.

My influences comes from the scriptures, literature, music, poems, movies, TV shows, and the astounding beauty of nature itself. Deep thoughts, introspection, hilarity, astonishment, happiness, quiet reverie, they all make themselves at home in my heart and soul. I draw (pun intended) upon all these influences in coaxing them out, where they venture forth into paintings, drawings and mixed media.

They just can’t help themselves.
