Many years ago, I took art classes in college, but my career turned towards technology and my life towards family. My art lay dormant until the past few years when I rediscovered how much I enjoyed painting and drawing.
Born and raised in Tampa Florida, in my younger days I constantly drew. Art classes were the only ones I did well in. When my grades made me a perfect candidate for military service, I joined the U.S. Air Force. The service brought me to Texas in the early 70’s, where I met my inspiring wife and decided to stay.
Mostly self-taught, I work predominately in acrylics, but I also enjoy drawing with water-soluble and graphite pencils. I also have become deeply involved in ceramics and the Steampunk genre. Visit steampunkpottery.com to see how deep it’s gotten.
While I enjoy being outside painting or drawing, I can typically be found working in my upstairs studio or down in my garage throwing a pot on my wheel.

Can you send me some stuff through DHL?
Yes, I can ship any method that will get it there. What stuff are you interested in?
Thank you for sharing The McKensie Papermaking iMethod with us. I believ that innovative approach that you have developed will bring joy to many at-home papermakers, especially those with limited space and equipment.
Thanks Yama. I enjoyed meeting you the other day….and learning for you!
