Gene grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He earned an AA degree in                                        Advertising illustration and Design from the Colorado  Institute of Art                                         in Denver. He worked as a commercial artist in Denver and Colorado Springs before moving to Southern California to specialize in illustration and cartooning where he worked (and work is a bad word) he enjoyed every art assignment very much. And he illustrated and Cartooned around Southern California for approximately 30 years.

He and his wife moved to Prescott, Arizona in November 2001 and continued to work at

illustration and cartooning for a while, but it became more difficult to keep his clients by not

being in their immediate area.

He started moving to the fine art field. THey were in a small country church in Chino Valley,

Arizona. There are some real cowboys, ranchers, and farmers attending that church, Talking with

and being around them awakened a long held desire to paint and draw western art.

Having just had three sucessful showings at the Phippen Museum Western Art Show at the Prescott

Courthouse Square Memorial Day Weekend, This was his first exposure in the world of fine

art. He feels very honored to have been among some of the finest western artists in the country.

We are not sure what the next step will be but were ready.
