Profile Information

Fine Artist - Instructor
A little about me (so that you know I am a real person and not a spammer!)
Along time ago I studied at Columbus College of Art and Design to learn the finer points on painting and drawing. I've continued to paint as a hobby and professionally ever since.

A few months ago my family and I picked up the art supplies and moved to Florida to continue life in the arts. Now I paint and draw everyday. It's My Life, its what I do!!

I specialize in portraits, famous figures, pop art, realism, expressionism, all with oils !! I’ve done many custom commissions all over the world, in the USA and internationally. I have been broadening my horizons by touching into the pastels. Graphite drawings have always been fun for me to do and now they are hanging up around some venues from Bradenton to Venice as well.

Within four months or so, I’ve entered in several exhibits, won my first award, done several demos, done my first solo show and I’ve already started teaching painting and graphite, at 2 wonderful Art Centers in Bradenton and Venice Florida. I am chasing my dreams, and they are coming true over and over again.

I bring a lot of real world experience and natural talent that can be touched on, in all of my work. I look at art in a special way if we can create a buzz about a piece and get people talking, that’s good art. Creating thoughts and provoking emotion through art is my goal. Let’s give the viewer an experience, a reason to be standing there looking at the art …. And they will keep coming back!
