My hope is that I can continue to grow with each painting or bronze sculpture I finish, and I thank God for the abilities He has given me.

His work has been published internationally and won numerous awards.
His interest in nature and wildlife continues. Through business and vacation travel, he has sketched and photographed many wildlife areas, from the Arctic Circle to Australia.
Robert's awareness to habitat, detail,color, composition, and the natural beauty of God's creation are very evident in his paintings, sculpture, and various other artistic expressions.
