I've always loved art...As a child, I eagerly took to drawing w/ pencil, anything and everything, with a particular fondness for dinosaurs (who wouldn't?)! In my teenage years throughout High School, I unfortunately got away from the physical medium of drawing, and changed my focus to music! A lifelong lover of music, I dabbled in various bands throughout the years, playing a variety of instruments, but eventually my artistic focus returned to drawing and then, for the first time in my life, painting. I was in my late 30s (I'm now in my early 40s), when I first attempted to paint w/ oil. I had used acrylic paints in a couple of college courses, and have since utilized that again, as well, but not nearly as often as my personally preferred oil...I hope and aim to continue to better my work, and I look forward to sharing it with you.
