I am a self-taught artist, who was encouraged to paint by a close friend. Life and near death experiences, a lightning strike, a hold at gunpoint, a venomous sting to the head, and wondrous moments in nature, inspire my work. The intense passion to create produces my wild, vivid, imaginary, whimsical, sexy pieces of art. The road ahead is unpredictable. There is a painting ready to diagram the past queing in my head.
