Art has always been a passion of mine but due to career and raising a family I wasn't able to devote as much time to it as I wanted. Painting was my first love and around the year 2000 I started sculpting character figures also.
In addition to personal research and self- training, I have received instruction from several respected and well known artists. Since the individual artists have different methods and areas of expertise, I have been able to learn the use of various techniques, materials and products. As a result, my paintings and sculpted art reflect a composite of my personal creativity and experience, plus the influence of those with whom I have studied.
I broke the abstract trend briefly to paint a more realistic painting for my Son-in-Law, who loves to sail.
