Art has always been a passion of mine. I wanted to know as much about art as I could possibly learn. I still strive to learn something new every day. It takes practice and patience to be a full time artist and I am finally able to devote one hundred percent of my professional life to my studio work.
After many years working in and around art, making a living as an advertising designer, art teacher, photographic artisan and many other niches, I finally opened my art studio to the dedication of purely fine art. I am a trained artist, receiving a BFA and a MFA in the seventies and eighties, respectively.
I love oil painting. I love animals and flowers and nature itself. I believe that I was given a talent by God to share His beauty about the world through the use of paint and canvas. I try to relate the love of nature and His Blessings through my art.
I hope that the collectors of my work can be touched in some way to “Stop and Smell the Roses” for a moment and reflect on the joy and beauty that has been given to us each day. I hope that the passion I have for art and the passion I have to share nature’s beauty is reflected in my work.
