I am currently an assistant professor of visual arts at Tarrant County College. I teach art history, art appreciation, painting, drawing and spent some time as the curator of a private corporate art collection. I am a member of the Oil Painters of America and participate in various other events, from professional conferences to art fairs. I am blessed to have a great family, a great life filled with adventures, and yes, if I’m not in the studio, I’m binge watching Game of Thrones or dreaming of the next beach to visit.
I use many different mediums, such as charcoal, pastels, watercolor, acrylics and oils. Each medium offers opportunities to explore differing techniques and interests.
From the fluid, immediacy of a watercolor to the lusciousness of an oil, each work utilizes the essence of the medium to capture the nature of my expression.
I love nature and find its ever-changing states to be fascinating. Whether focused on landscape elements, the sky, even thin slices of rocks viewed under a microscope, every color, every texture, in its infinite varieties provide a well-spring of possibilities.
