I grew up in a small town in northwestern Ohio and spent many weekends, as a young boy, wondering the back halls of the Toledo Art Museum while my little sister took art lessons. It was torture but somehow it got under my skin!
I am self taught and paint nearly everyday. I love to ask the question, "What would happen if ….?". I am energized by the painting process!
I am inspired by life and by any artist that pursues the gift with abandon.
Having just returned from a 3 month art tour of Europe, New York and Sante Fe, looking for my voice, I've discovered a choir and fully anticipate expanding my artistic expression into other media.
