Drawing is a long time friend. As a child, I loved drawing from encyclopedia's. In pen, the abstract creations where continous patterned designs. In the Navy, I sketched copies of the masters that led to proficient shading and dilineation of line. While Attending Olympic College, the Life Drawing classes taught me responsive techniques within a larger format.

Drawings from my sketch book circa 1977 drawn aboard the U.S. Navy aircraft carrier that I was stationed on for over three years. Doing portraits and studing the masters improved my drawing styles. Often, along with my signature, I added the type of pencil used. Good drawing skills gave me the confidence to explore abstraction.
