About the Artist
Hello, I’m Wayne, “Jr.” if you are close family, or “Gonzo” if you are in the military. I was an art major who became a Cobra attack helicopter pilot in the Marine Corps, hence the call-sign: Gonzo. I know, I know, it’s not a common career path.
After retiring from the Corps in 14' and 5 years teaching online, I became an airline pilot. Hey, there was a pilot shortage!
In 2020 the Coronavirus has hit everyone hard, including the airline industry, with very little flying during lockdown I decided to use my time productively and, after a 26 year break from painting watercolors, I started painting again.
Some friends and family asked if they could buy my artwork and suggested I sell prints. So, here we are. In short: I’m an artist, turned Marine, turned airline pilot, turned artist again.
