Some time at Grand Rapids Community College and Kendall School of Art & Design. Never graduated...
EYE FOR ART
I always enjoyed art. My mother was a very talented oil painter of the starving artist caliber. I always was encouraged to draw and paint. I air-brushed on vehicles for a while, but made no money. After working for 10 years at PennCentral and ConRail railroads as an electrician, I was laid off. A wife, mortgage and 3 kids certainly is motivation to make some money. I finally landed a job at Gannett and low and behold I was back around something that need painting.
