Hello World, I am

Biography

Ceramics was actually my main focus in art for over 23 years. While I 'dabbled' in oil paint during that same period I had no formal instructions. If my previous paintings were to be classified as any art style, it would be Folk Art. In 2017 I moved to the Philippines and stopped producing art in any media. In 2019 I returned to the US but I no longer have access to a pottery studio so as of January 2020 I began following the 'paint along' instructional videos of William Alexander. The only formal oil painting instructions come from W. Alexander tutorial videos so I would say I'm half followed instructions half self taught. The artist who did the most in getting me to put paint on a canvas was of course William Alexander but artist from the past who have inspired me to want to paint are Vincent Van Gogh for the color and energy of his paintings, Caravaggio for his absolute realism and Vermeer for his mastery of light and dark. I want to express a certain amount of realism in my paintings but, mostly I want the viewer to get the feeling of wanting to be there,
