I am a professional artist with twenty years experience in painting mainly in oil, acrylic and watercolor mediums. I have studied art for most of my life and continue to develop my style of painting. I enjoy teaching art, which has led to me developing courses to help artists seeking to improve their work.
I am also concerned with helping people find their calling to create. This includes using art to release creative blocks, achieve mindfulness and more calm in our lives. Art has great potential to ease the burdens of modern living.
I follow a representational approach to subjects using a painterly or impressionistic style. Plein air painting is a favorite part of my approach to painting. I currently produce paintings for sale to collectors worldwide.
