I am a creative soul that loves to embrace challenges on the road to greatness. I began painting several years ago. I believe that I get my talent from my Grandfather Dennis Budenski he too was a Artist and believed I had a talent from an early age. I spent a lot of time in my granddads studio listening to him describe color and the way light plays in the overall effects of the picture he would be working on at the time. When I was about 12 my Granddad gave me everything i need to begin painting. I painted a dog that looked like a squirrel and I asked my Granddad why he thought I could paint? He says too me I see a talent in you and someday you will understand. When my Granddad passed away in 2007 I acquired quite few or his art work and it inspired me to give painting another go and this has led me to today.
