Creative Disciplines And Mediums
I am an artist who specializes in paintings/drawings in acrylics and oils using various methods such as palette knife, brushes and fluid media.
I was inspired by Vincent Van Gogh through his use of texture to convey a sense of realism and movement through his work. He “breathes life” into an inanimate painting.
Other masters are also admired and studied with their portrayal of light and dark to capture the drama of the objects being represented.
I completed my Masters in International Business from Saint Thomas University, HOUSTON and spent 20+ years in Corporate America. All through my life, I have had formal art training up to various college level art, but I am mostly self taught.
To breathe “life” into inanimate paintings so that it could speak and dance and show me the magic of this beautiful world.
