Biography



 
 
 
Art has been a personal endeavor of mine for years. Through all my life journeys, whether it was directed toward my personal or professional life, I would keep turning to my art and the desire to paint.
 
 I have traveled down many artistic paths,including enjoying the path of my son's artistic journey, (www.travishallfineart.com) that kept me inspired and  close to the one desire I had, and that was to paint.
I have worked with many types of painting medium, but found myself returning to the painting medium of oil.
I love the way it makes me feel and how it can be turned into something beautiful. Through all my experiences with painting I have been blessed with the opportunities to work under some great painters.
I believe you can never stop learning and always try to improve your work. My paintings are created with memories of familiar things and objects that catch my eye because of the color, shape, or just very  interesting to me. Some Workshops, Demo's  and Teachings that I have attended include -
 
Gregg Kreutz                        Daniel J Keys                   Marta Crawford
Kelli Folsom,                        Kathy Anderson              Suchitra bhosle
Phil Starke                            Clinton Broyles.               Rick Mcclure
Sue Lyon                                Dave Santillanes
Qiang Huang,                       Nancy Medina
Sherri McGraw,                   Xiang Zhang
Jeff Legg,                              Frank Covino
