Born in Oklahoma City, March 28, 1954. My mother an organist for the Catholic Church caused me to study Cathedral Architecture and Design. My father always worked with plants, and they were both Nature Lovers. My older brother became a well-known Artist in OKC. In my early 20s, he and I did a considerable amount of artistic work in the Paseo Arts District of OKC. My own talents were more towards Design, Geometry, Structure, Craftworks, Stained-glass, Stonework, Masonry, Ceramics, and Sculpture. Built a Creative Play Landscape in 1979 for a Montessori School, and did some hand-carved sign work as well as building a complex geometric (Great Dodecahedron) stained-glass lamp. Lived for a year in a Sikh Ashram and did an entire Creative restaurant Interior and a hand carved sign for their Golden Temple Restaurant. Was vegetarian then, as I tried to be from an early age. Created an etched glass window for the futuristic home of famous heart surgeon Dr. Nazih Zuhdi. Lived in Arkansas Granite Co. for a year designing and building complex/inlaid granite tables for the high-end Furniture Mkt. in Dallas.
