I am a representational artist. I love everything about painting with oil. The medium provides an endless depth of learning. My art typically falls into the 3 categories : figure/portrait, landscape/citiscape, and still life. I practice plein air and studio painting. I paint from life and photos. I try to let the subject matter guide me.
Primarily self taught in the arts with early training by Bob Gerbracht in S.F. and a few workshops, videos, and books.
