I picked up a brush in 1992 and stroked the canvas, I knew then that I wanted to paint. I am a self-taught artist that loves to study as much as I love to paint. Being self-taught and using the methods of my own choosing has enabled me to accomplish techniques in which I can freely express my own creativity. I would call myself a tonal painter, I love to depict the unique degrees of values. Most of all I love to capture the light that shines upon the subject and the shadows that bring forth that light.
I have won awards, commissioned works and have paintings throughout the country and abroad. I am teaching workshops and am having a lot of fun with my students. I am represented by Proctor Art Gallery and Patrick Daley at Gilman Gallery.
I have come to the conclusion with all my studying that what I paint has already been created by God. I just copy His works and the creativity that He shows me. He is my teacher.
