Being an indiscriminate animal lover, I started feeling out a potential artist career some years back by painting pet portraits for coworkers, friends, and family. The positive response and my growing passion kept me going. I have now expanded my artistic vocabulary to include still life, landscape, wildlife, and portraiture as well. My mediums of choice are Acrylic, Watercolor, and Oils. Though Oils have become a serious favorite.
Since my late teens, the idea of being a self sustaining artist full time has never left my mind. In truth, I love painting so much that time spent focusing most of my energy on anything else makes me feel empty, sad, and like I'm not spending my time properly. I cant stay away. Now I am painting full time with full determination to make this passion work as a career, one way or another.
