Most of my career has been spent in the field of business, unrelated to art, but I was always hoping for that moment when I would try to learn how to paint.
During the past several years I enrolled in several local art classes featuring pastels and oil painting… slowly teaching myself some of the basic principles in each of the mediums. At this early juncture of learning I am currently enjoying genres of representational and landscape themes.
“There are so many local artists whose artworks I admire, that I find myself rushing to cram all I can into a schedule that allows me to observe, study and paint…both from memories of my life’s experiences or some particularly beautiful reflection of nature.”
