OF ALL THE THINGS

THINGS I'VE LEARNED ALONG THE WAY

It is fair to say, this path of mine has not been direct. I've been around, doing things because they were interesting.

 

After earning a BFA in sculpture, travel abroad led me to portrait drawing in the streets of Italy. In addition to learning the language, that venture set me on a period of commission portrait painting.

I had always been pulled toward the craft of representational oil painting, so I went all in to see if I could figure it out. That was great fun.
