We love displaying and promoting our local artist. We welcome the community to come in and view the artist work and or make a purchase while you are there. All of their work is for sale. All proceeds go to the artist, not to Forest Ridge, so please support your local artist.
I am a local artist currently based here in Woodland Park and a member of the Mountain Artists Art Association. By hosting the much loved Mountain Arts Festival every August, we provide scholarships to local high school students and recent grads to aide in artistic studies. This will be the 35th year of the festival to be held at the Ute Pass Cultural Center, August 1st and 2nd . We also host an indoor Holiday Art Festival the Saturday after Thanksgiving with plenty of one of a kind Christmas gifts. In addition, you will find my art at the Arati Gallery in Old Colorado Springs, 2425 West Colorado Avenue.
If you are not familiar with the Annual Holly Berry House Folk Art Festival at Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site, come and see my display of art there this September 18, 19, 20, 2020. This event is in its 42nd year and is a real treat.
I have been involved in art for as long as I can remember and was fortunate to have a career as designer of Christmas decorations for Rene D. Lyon Company out of San Diego. Importing manufactured product produced from my designs out of Taiwan, Korea, and Hong Kong. With the production capacity of the Orient, it is fun to know that thousands of my ornaments accent trees across America, while hundreds of my paintings accent homes bringing a little bit of joy.
In 1980 I began working in computer graphics, long before the days of personal computers or Apple products, serving as creative directive for several decades in video, animation, multi-media, web-design, publications, and exhibit design In December, 2016 my wife and I retired to Colorado Springs, Colorado where the landscapes, seasons, and wildlife provide endless inspiration. I have been enriched by membership and participation in multiple artist groups in Colorado. Studio painting is my passion, with a focus on wildlife, landscapes, and western art. Plein air painting has become a way for me to expand my creativity, meet many artists, and explore new techniques in order to render a subject.
