The truth is, we need art and more of it. Art isn't necessary for survival, yet it makes survival have high value, to paraphrase CS Lewis. I am blessed beyond measure to have this God given ability and it is my duty to share my gift with the world. I have always been fascinated by the figure and a representational style. I "borrow" ideas from Degas, Van Gogh, Sorella, and Rodin. As a child I was lucky enough to live in the vicinity of The Art Institute of Chicago, where I spent many hours looking at the beautiful work. I hope to inspire you, as I pour my heart and soul in my work, ever honing and perfecting. If you get a chance to visit the Art Gym, I'll be painting away upstairs, would love to have a chat with you!
