Biography adapted from Artists of Utah and a statement supplied by the artist.

I grew up in a home with the paintings of my great-grandfather, Orson D. Campbell on the walls. His landscapes had a strong influence on me, and I wanted to be a painter just like he was. I am mostly self-taught, though I had a few lessons from LeConte Stewart in 1985 and '86. In the mid-90's I attended Weber State University and took as many art classes as I could.

I prefer to paint landscapes in oil, but I occasionally use watercolor or pastel. Ceramics, especially primitive process pottery, has been a longtime interest of mine as well as flint knapping.
