I’ve got a BFA in figure drawing from Eastern Michigan and I studied classical painting privately with Scott Waddell of Grand Central Academy in NYC.
I try to take workshops often with painters I admire to sharpen my skills. I’ve been a full-time artist since 2004 and I’ve been teaching since 2015.
Drawing things, especially animals and people are among my earliest memories. But I didn't discover painting until I was much older, so now I paint like I'm making up for lost time. I've been in the studio most days for the last 20 years.
I feel very lucky, I don't think I could ever get tired of painting and sharing it with others through teaching.
