I am a full time professional artist. My artwork is collected world wide and I've been selected as a Sotheby's New York and London online American Established Contemporary Expressionist Artist. With my Sotheby's sales I became a Listed Artist in Mayer's International Auction Record from Switzerland - the international art collector's reference book.
I've been on PBS several times, had my art published in print all over the world, had my art images licensed on over 30 products worldwide, been selected to show and sell my art at both Disney World's EPCOT Flower & Garden and Food & Wine Festivals in the Festival Center, and was the 2007 EPCOT Flower & Garden Poster Artist. My art has been published in numerous publications and I've been represented in galleries all over the USA.
Now that I'm getting a bit older I want to slow down the process of painting very large pieces of artwork, packing and shipping. I want to share my years of art experience and information and Udemy seems to offer a good platform for teaching.
I like to make things FUN! Art should not be cut and dry - it's a fun thing to do. I don't think I'm the best artist, because love of art is individual. My courses will teach people to paint from their heart and do what they want to do and, this is important . . . it's ok if not every person likes your art - that would make a pretty boring world, right?
So, there you are - me in a few paragraphs.
