Artist Statement

I really enjoyed painting and drawing as a kid growing up in Mass. I pretty much majored in art through jr high and high school. I attended SMU in Dartmouth Ma and then joined the Army for 4 yrs in the 80s it was a good experience for me and I lived in Europe for 2 yrs and really got to travel and take lots of pics and meet interesting people in between working.

After 4 yrs in military I relocated to Tampa Fl and finished my BFA with a concentration in photography. I loved spending time in the darkroom. Being a veteran and broke college student in the late 80s I got hired by the post office while finishing my degree at US

While working at the post office I started freelancing, painting murals,showing my photos in galleries and I started painting again. Then Fter testing the waters for a year I knew it was time to jump ship and head out on my own. Kinda scary after 20 years a slave (lol)...

I have been self employed for approximate 10 years now. I travel do art shows in Florida and lots of other states too in the summer mths. I also paint murals and enjoy commissioned works as well. I paint architecture and cool car portraits.

Although I enjoy traveling and have an rv I am also starting to help out other artists as well. I have a nice studio in my backyard and print my own giclees on canvas. I also stretch the canvas and offer these services at affordable rates. A digital capture of your art is available on a cd for you. I also plan to start teaching acrylic painting classes in the near future.
