I began the fantasy series of “Appletree Hollow” paintings a few years ago. Some of their personal story is based (loosely) on actual historical facts.You can read about the Discovery of Appletree Hollow in 2007 in my latest Journal entry

The beginning of Appletree Hollow Diaries: the discovery was just before Easter this year 2007. On the left is the first image I posted from the album & diary, which is dated: Oct.22, 1816.
Bertrum Patch (left) & Maggie Peck(right). Here they are shown as childhood friends.
There was not a lot of information about them as children but in later life they married and became the first interracial couple of Apple Tree Hollow.

I have been a painter and sculptor for over 43 years professionally and after all this time, I still love it. It is challenging, makes me think about the world and keeps me connected to life.
My art is a mix of realism and impressionism with a bit of humor thrown in.
I am available for commission work- just ask!
