Life is good....Painting and sketching from life,

fuels by my passion to become better.   My favorite subjects... animals

 and portraits, where likeness and

personality of my subject are key...

highlighting the eyes, at times

 I use gold leafing for added appeal.

I want to know as

much about my subjects as possible

through experience, observation, research

and study before starting my piece.  When painting

equine I may incorporated the horse's

hair into the painting as well

as my thumb print.

Plein air and still life work allows for

artistic growth and a change

of pace out of the studio.

 

Working as a graphic artist for 19 years laid a

valuable foundation of discipline and a

"business sense" for success as I shifted

to exclusively fine art in 1995.

 

 

Large murals in public and private venues

play a major role in my extensive

list of services.  I welcome a challenge...

creatively, physically and mentally,

always looking for the next opportunity to try

something new.

 

b.1956

My love of art started after taking

an art class in the seventh grade.

Graduating with a commercial

art degree in 1976, I worked as a

graphic designer for 19 years before

pursuing fine art full time.

 

Commissioned canvas work, murals,

solo/group exhibits and art competitions

consume my daily art schedule.
