I am a fine art painter working in egg tempera, oil, and metal leaf. I produce original art (paintings) for sale.
Artistic Education: I am a self-taught artist and have taken workshops/classes with the following fine artists: Koo Schadler, Katherine Stone, Pamela Hawkes, Michael Bergt, Brad Kunkle, and Martin Wittfooth. Due to my formal education, I have fundamental knowledge of animal anatomy, physiology, and psychology which is an important foundation for my work as an animal artist.
