I create artwork from scenes that capture my imagination. I work in a variety of genres and I am excited by each one. I have a passion, an addiction, if you will. Art is not something that I have a choice about. It is something I must do. Even if no one were ever to see the work, I would be painting anyway. Yes, art should be a dialogue and there should be an audience, but if I were stranded on a fabled desert island, I would find a way to draw pictures in the sand. I have been creating artwork most of my life, though not on a consistent basis. Life had a way of getting in the way.
I started out studying Photography in college followed by five years of free-lance work. I subsequently took a position in the corporate world. I came back to art after I took a painting workshop about fifteen years ago, and have been at it ever since, loving every minute of it.
Thank you for looking.
