I have been painting as a hobby for over 30 years. I started in High School and choose Art as my major. My dream was to study Art in College, but life got in the way so it just stayed a hobby for me. My inspirations come from various things and change often making my work very eclectic. Many of my friends and family encouraged me to sell my artwork and I considered it for years before deciding to go for it. I gave a lot of my earlier pieces away as gifts and I am told that they are cherished. I have done custom pieces and Murals. For 2 years I taught painting classes as a side job, holding classes for as many as 20 students at a time. I enjoyed sharing my love for art and teaching my students that there is no wrong when it comes to creativity. Some of my former students paint on there own now and create some beautiful pieces. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it.
