Originally from the Midwest, I have lived in Southern California since 1991. Surviving a rare illness in 2005, I began taking art classes at a local community college as a hobby. I received an associates degree in photography and am now taking advanced painting classes. I am a member of the San Diego Art Institute. All my oil paintings are signed and dated on the back. Shipping fees for the U.S. include packaging, insurance, and the shipping costs.
I enjoy oil painting, and focus primarily on nature and abstract work. I like to use vibrant colors, elements in design, and color theory in my paintings. Many of my inspirations come from my photographs that I have taken in the past.
