I began really painting when I was 21. I say really only to convey that at that time I decided to take it in a professional direction. I attended the University of Michigan for a Bachelor of Fine Arts. I have also studied in Barcelona and Salamanca, Spain which was, of course, awesome.
I have been an artist since I was born. I worked in anything and everything. It wasn't until I turned 21 that oils became my passion. I am completely biased and love them more than any other medium so far.
All things inspire me. It changes from day to day, month to month. The world as a place we exist in an infinite space inspires me. I'm in awe and I paint what strikes me at the moment. I will say that color is one of my main focuses. I use it to reveal many moods and the fact that there are infinite colors affords me endless possibilities.
