Herman studied architecture at the University of Kansas and spent a career in construction of commercial buildings.  Throughout his career he painted; drew in pencil, pen and ink; and used computer drawing systems.  Now retired, he continues to paint in the studio and outdoor (en plein air) landscapes.  He became fascinated with the work of these Celtic scribes’ illustrated copies of scriptures and will present an introduction to the art form.
