There are different opinions, as to where an artist's desire is born. Some say, "a schooled regimen", and others prefer...'a gift from God', 'a natural talent', or, 'an over-active right side'. Personally, I believe that everyone is born with a specific passion to help them with a life that smiles. I encourage "I hate my life"-ers to believe in their's. Passion has no respect for time. Learning, practice, failures and success all seem to take simple moments. My passion is art. Perhaps, because the essence of art is sharing. I invite you to come share in mine and show me your own passion!

A self-taught artist for over twenty-three years, I followed my passion for realism through the mediums of pencil, charcoal, pastel, watercolor and oils. My methods and techniques can be generalized into one word...'transparency'. I work with multiple layers of paint, which requires patience between applications. I find this gives me incredible depth and luminosity in my paintings. I am a true purist with my work-including, no use of masking fluids or tapes in my watercolor pieces. "What is white is the paper..." was an attraction I found through my use of charcoal and I have followed that passion through to the other mediums. Reading the eyes of animals, for years, gave way to telling stories of travels-through the portraiture of beautiful and historical places visited. I hope my art is a reminder of your own story there, or, encourages you to go make one.
