I've been an artist all my life but I really only started taking it seriously when I was 34, eighteen years ago. My training has been as an outsider, a couple of semesters of art classes at a community college, a weekend workshop, tons of books, and Youtube videos.
My art philosophy is simply to work and to keep learning, hoping to be better. Occasionally I produce a piece of art or do a brush stroke and think, "maybe I am improving?"
I plan to continue to work throughout the rest of my life, to always have a canvas I'm working on.
I currently live and work in Northern California.
