Hello! I'm an artist happily located in Arizona. I love painting the human form and pushing boundaries in techniques and methods of painting! I am a huge lover of historical figures, events, religions especially mythologies, and more! some may think me a true amateur history buff! If I'm not painting, I'm researching and writing on all things war and political issues all the back through Europe and tracing down to ancient civilizations. I was apprenticed by Italian artist and master teacher, Frank Covino who took me in while still a teenager. I left high school for my art began college classes at the age of 16 in the interim. I received my degree of arts, in fine art specializing in painting, at the age of 18. I worked as a mural artist and free-lance artist for less than a year before I was hired by a world renowned company known to produce famous artists and sell commercial art around the world. After getting married and working for quite some time, I have now decided to fulfill my dreams of painting my love for history in an attempt to show next generations and remind the older generations of where we come from, who we are, and inspire deep thought of how we will move forward by learning from our rich past! I love portraits and welcome commissions to fill that small niche where I am pushed to paint subjects that will further my training and eye.
