Engineering and Art

My basic yearning in life is to be a creative person.
  • That is why I am an engineer
  • That is why I build models
  • That is why I dabble in painting
  • That is why I enjoy photography
  • That is why I continue to try to learn new things
I was able to do all of that in college. The learning part was obvious, and below are some early examples of some of the other outlets for my creativity.

Viking 75.3
This is a 1/12th scale model of the Viking Mars lander I built my senior year in college, around 1977.

1975 Aero Mural 1a sm
This is a mural I painted in the student lounge in the aerospace engineering building. The building has since been demolished.

I still enjoy building models and doing paintings today, as I have been doing this for a long time. I like to write and publish newsletters and magazine-style publications (see last page of this site).
