I was a great artist in the fifth grade, at least that's what my classmates and art teacher thought. My parents thought differently, however, and transferred me to a Catholic school, and that was the end of my art career. By the time I got to college, I was convinced that the intellectual search for truth was far superior to the aesthetic. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree and hadn't taken one course in art. None were offered, even though the college professed to be "liberal arts."

In a sense, I was on the same course as Robert Motherwell (philosopher to artist), but for me the end came in the jungles of Vietnam. My education had not prepared me to face the test of war. Philosophy and all my professors had abandoned me. I'm not sure how I survived. My semi-autobiographical novel, Xray His Mark, is available on Amazon and elsewhere.

In a nutshell, my art reverses the roles of the clear and the obscure. It is based on faith, both in the life world and the transcendent.
