Since childhood, I have found a connection with the visual arts. My art represents
colors and textures found in the natural environment. With my studies in academic art
education, my roots are established in Impressionism. Through portraiture and landscape
painting, I strive to express the likeness of a subject. Ultimately, lighting and color are
emphasized in my artwork to create a scenic moment that establishes the true essence of
my artistic concept. A favorite medium of mine is oil paint, watercolor, and photography.
I currently live and teach art in Ave Maria, Florida.
