"No Art Without Craft" - 

- Theodore Low De Vinne

"A gear head artist in the mountains of Idaho pursuing his craft."

- David Story

I was born in Idaho. I grew up in Kennewick, Washington. I graduated from Washington State University with a degree in Art.

For 25 years I was a homebuilder in the Kennewick area. About 15 years ago I decided to make a change. I wasn’t going to live forever and there were some things I wanted to do before I died. So I shut down my 40-50 homes a year business, resigned my position on the board of a community bank and decided to pursue my original passion in art.

In 2005 my wife and I sold our home of 20 years and moved 500 miles to Inkom, Idaho. There we built a new home with a studio on 10 acres on the side of Mount Bonneville.

My wife and I are the parents of 7 children and the grand parents of 21 grandchildren

But in the end, I am just a gear head who loves to draw or paint just about anything mechanical.  If I can be of any help or you just want to talk shop, I am all ears. Just send me an email from this site or to
