Being a Native of California, my love of bright colors and the ocean is dominant in my work. I have always loved art even as a child drawing was a passion of mine. as life progressed that passion moved to painting. after trying several mediums. I found my niche in oil painting. I view all my work as a challenge and a adventure ,one which as a selftaught artist I look to master and check off as a new skill set complete. my new passion is ink and illustrationing a picture based on a simple thought,a magical dream or just a fantastic imanigination.
