I collected stamps casually for many years
with my interest level changing many times...
In the mid-1990s the easy access and availability on eBay led to renewed interest and enthusiasm. I also discovered collecting First Day Covers and started building up a pretty nice collection.
I have many... WAY too many interests and hobbies
which have included "artwork" since I was a very small boy.
I have always liked to draw and over the years
went from crayons to oil paint...
Other than paintings hanging in our home and gifts for friends
I never found an "outlet" for my artwork until...
... one day the thought "struck" me
"Hey, why not combine two of my hobbies -
Art & First Day Covers"!
So, in late 2005 I started looking into "how" to get started and
with the help of a couple of talented established cachet makers,
the late Julian Pugh and Dave Peterman I created my"First Cachet"
doing two complete design sets for the Five Stamp Issue of 2005's
"50's Sporty Cars".
