Acrylic Impressionist Paintings
I read a lot of art books and I’m always teaching myself to be a better painter. Painting is like acting; you have to learn your script well in order to give a great performance.
I was born and raised in Ventura, California. I studied art at Pierce Jr. College in Northridge, then at the Art Academy in New Mexico. I have shown my work in galleries in Colorado, New Mexico and California. I have won numerous awards and have had the distinction of the State of New Mexico purchasing two of my paintings for their permanent collection. I teach acrylic art classes three times a year, and I love painting ‘plein air’ (on location).
