    Rusty was born in Michigan and lives just south of Ann Arbor.  He grew up surrounded by woods and farmland.  These early years inspired his childhood with nature, animals and birds.  Rusty started drawing as soon as he could hold a pencil and he drew what he came to love: the flora and fauna that surrounded him.  He was encouraged to use his talent with birthday and Christmas gifts of art supplies.  In school he received numerous awards for his art. Rusty continued his education with art classes in colleges.  

    He has also attended numerous workshops and taught workshops by invitation. Other honors include having his artwork featured on the Michigan Duck Stamp, winning an international remarque contest sponsored by a magazine; and awards from the Farmington spring art show, the Susan K Black Foundation art workshop, and the Art and Nature Show at a gallery in St. Augustine Florida.  Rusty is represented by Art Licensing, a publishing company from Vermont.

    Rusty’s paintings include paintings of wildlife, nature settings from around the area, as well as paintings form national parks. Rusty’s paintings are studio work as well as plein air. Most of the work is done in acrylics or oils. Rusty is inspired by unusual settings, trying to capture interesting designs. Sometimes it is a striking play of light, or capturing wildlife in captivating gesture.  Rusty's favorite saying is “Keeping It Wild!!!
