I am a self-taught artist. I have been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember. My mother was an artist and I started out on the floor of her art studio. I have been learning, practicing and progressing ever since. I have been a professional sign painter. I have taught art classes in public schools as well as a retail store. I am currently painting fine art on canvasses with acrylic paint. I am inspired by nature and geometry. When I create a painting, I am more interested in the mood and colors than the content. My desire is to add beauty to the world.
