Hi. I’m a wildlife and landscape artist, cartoonist, poet, and independent author of fantasy fiction.
I began my art career as a wildlife and landscape artist and a cartoonist for independent newspapers. I have also been a photographer, illustrator and art teacher.
I drew cartoons for my local independent newspapers for several years. My favorites are in the Art Blog section.
I’m also a self-published author. I write small-town suburban country fantasy fiction, which features a strange town I call Ridgewood. It began many years ago as Ravenwood (an honor to Edgar Allan Poe). My stories are in the Books section. Many of them have a reoccurring character named Vree Erickson (sometimes spelled Erikson). My stories span nearly a lifetime of writing.
