The first thing people tend to remember about me as a child is that I was always drawing. Even in elementary school I always had my sketchbook.

 

My first love was always traditional painting. I had an old book about the Old Masters I copied from when I wasn't copying Star Wars characters from magazines.

 

I received a BFA in figure drawing and graphic design with a minor in art history from Eastern Michigan University in 1987. I worked for 15 years as an art director and graphic designer. I painted and drew in my free time.

 

In 2000, I began freelancing to find more time to paint, and by 2004, I quit advertising to paint full-time. 

In addition to my studio practice, I teach painting in my Sarasota FL studio.
