Artist Statement / Bio


I started with pencil drawings, then moved to charcoal and pastels. I did water color and acrylics. I found my calling in the use of oil, creating textures with my pallet knives and enjoying the multitudes of available colors. Along this route I diversified from the normal use of canvas and attempted many different types of materials, these included saw blades, sand dollars, wood plaques, and shabby, the newest form of creating art on furniture.
