I am a retired real estate agent, living in Las Vegas, NV for the time being. Art has been important to me for many decades. It is only recently that I have been able to put the corporate world behind me and dive wholeheartedly into the the creation of my artistic visions. I find great peace when I have a pencil or brush in my hands. I am drawn to the old masters, much more so than the world of modern art. My influences stretch from the 1400's with Da Vinci and Michelangelo, to the 1600's with Rembrandt and Vermeer, to the 1800's with Monet and Renoir and to the present day. My modern day influences would be too many to mention, but if I had to pick two or three I would have to say Vincent Giarrano, Quang Ho and Matt Smith.
I have studied under quite a few very talented teachers over the past few years and look forward to continuing my art education. Some that I have studied with include Dreama Tolle Perry, Daniel Keys, Michael Chesley Johnson, Leslie Saeta and more.
