I studied art at the University of Texas at Arlington, but I am mostly self-taught via books, videos and workshops with other artists. Landscape painting in oil or acrylic is my first love, but I also paint animal portraits and create pen & ink drawings and small wire sculptures. The beauty of nature is my primary inspiration and I try to capture its spiritual essence in my art. My work is currently on display for sale at the Antique Mall of Allen located at 113 N. Greenville Avenue, Allen, TX 75002. I have won several awards in Dallas-area art exhibits and my work has been sold to collectors both in the United States and in Europe.
