Mostly I use my creative energies for my own enjoyment and delight, yet, if you like what I do, I'm also happy to share them with you...
After I retired I went back through my collection of sermons, accumulated across 36 years as a pastor, and pulled out personal stories I used in preaching. They became a book which is "self-published" for anyone interested in reading it. It's a quick and easy read. Though it will be of special interest to those who know me, there's a lot that will trigger the memories and stir the hearts of friends and strangers alike.
I make woodblock prints (Woodcuts) inspired by landscapes, creatures and human enterprises in our world, especially centered in life in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. It is my way of saying that these things are valuable - they truly matter! As you see them, I hope that you think so too. I don't have a printing press, so most are limited edition reduction prints which cannot be printed again, hand-pulled on Japanese washi paper.
