After winning awards for paintings created during his high school years in Oconomowoc, he studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and Layton School of art in Milwaukee. Later he began to experiment with innovative techniques, creating fluid works with atmospheric combinations of watercolor, oil, and reflective layers of acrylic paints and metallic powders.Influenced by his interest in science fiction and space phenomena, his dreamy landscapes also reflected a love of nature. He lived in a contemporary home and gallery of his own design in rural Delafield surrounded by beautiful gardens.

Extremely prolific, it has been estimated that he created more than 6000 paintings during his lifetime.
