I’m a self taught artist, who has recently retired from a career as a telecommunications project manager for AT&T. I began drawing as a child, probably influenced by my older sister who was obsessed with drawing horses.
I have spent the last 16 years painting with acrylics, and before that using pastels. I've also enjoyed doing drawings in pencil or charcoal, including some commissions for family and friends.
Some of my favorite artists include the masters J. Sorrolla, J. Sargent, M. Cassatt, and too many living artists to name here. I love the act of painting. I’m now dedicated to painting in oil, and I am taking classes at Highland Arts Guild with Peggy Cain.
