I have always done art in some form since childhood. As I grew older, pencil and ink became my favorite mediums. At the age of 30 I discovered paint and a new door opened. I found there to be almost limitless possibilities with color and so my adventure began. I attended Western State College and earned a BFA in fine art. While there I studied the human form and excelled in this subject. After I graduated I continued to work with people but became bored because it seemed like it was limiting. I did not work in any medium for almost 8 yrs. About 4 yrs ago I picked up my brushes and discovered landscapes and seascapes. Out of this I developed my own style and technique. At first my work barely showed the flavor and design that it does now. Although the paintings were barely expressive, I could see something unfolding with every picture. As my abilities began to grow in this new style so did my appetite for expressing myself. Although the images of landscapes, florals, and seascapes are from real places and things, when I sit down to paint I use my creativity to manipulate the scene. In this way I am able to make pictures that reflect how I see the world around me. I hope to continue in this venture and possibily open even more doors on this journey.
