Biography

I once was a right-handed man. When i lost theuse of my right arm,it took me three years to learn to draw with my left hand.Even then you needed a magnifying glass to see what i had drawn! Buti am stubborn and so......I figured i needed to have some kind of trade and the closest thing that i could come to it was my artwork. I studied and practiced until i could do whatever i wanted.I could paint people places and things. That is why whenever people ask me what i can do , I say, People places an things" . For the past 25 years ive been selling my prints, ink drawings,ink an watercolour, paintings and pastels door to door.
