Welcome to my artists home page. Growing up with a father that was a fine artist and commercial art director, I was introduced to a canvas at an early age. Through my fathers tutelage, I learned the basics of painting. As a teenager I dabbled with watercolors but never took painting seriously, perhaps because of a rebellious spirit or maybe a youthful ignorance, but now in my later more mature years I have made an effort to have a relationship with painting and this talent my father and mother passed on to me. Through mentors Scott Yeskel and Cheryl Kline I  recently learned the secrets of painting. They have helped elevate my work through their wisdom and honesty. I continue to learn from  both of them and others that have an incredible gift.
