Hi everyone. I have been creating art for almost 12 years. While mostly self taught
I have had the opportunity to study through the Pallet Art League in Arkansas and the Southern Atelier in Sarasota Florida. While I have always loved creating artwork, I did not start pursuing it seriously until I was in my 30's. I consider myself an oil painter and enjoy creating realistic art, although I do find some abstract art appealing.
As you will find, most of my art is still life. I am attracted to still life for two reasons. First, I like the challenge of coming up with compositions. Second, it is a way to always keep working and developing myself as an artist.
At this time, I plan to branch out into other genres of painting, portraiture, the human figure, plein air and so forth.
