Bob was born and lived in Berea, Ky. until 1969.
Growing up around artist and craftsman at nearby Berea Collage, a private liberal arts college, certainly influenced his love of art and creativity. Bob began drawing and creating art at an early age.
Bob lived in Santa Cruz, CA and traveled the world as a buyer finding art, antiques, collectibles and other interesting treasures for a California importer. Bob had the opportunity to see and enjoy artist creations all around the world and for a time lived in Jepara Indonesia.
After retiring a few years ago, Bob picked up his love of art and began painting and creating again.
Bob and his wife MJ moved to Carson City from North Carolina in 2015 and enjoy living, painting and exploring Nevada and the Eastern Sierras.
