About the Artist~
I tend to draw from early techniques established by early renaissance artists. I have been self taught in the classical method, but also have briefly been under the professional guidance of local masters. I enjoy the outdoors, music, and derives inspiration from observing the natural world understanding that it is the work of a loving God who has breathed its entire existence.
About the Art:
Art has always been an activity which allows me to express thought, emotion, and conviction. Art to me is about story telling, every story has importance, meaning, and value. If my art fails to maintain possession of those three vitally important ingredients, it would have been better to have left the canvas white.
About the Materials:
I work primarily with oil and canvas, using also primed boards and other hard materials. I also experiment in mix media as well as ink and graphite drawing.
