Personal

Having raised two children and cared for aging parents, I find at this point in my life I have the time to dedicate myself anew and fully to art. It has been exciting, inspiring these last 10-15 years to watch a resurgence of classical realism. I am eager to avail myself of the expertise that has emerged during that period, and to build on my skills to be able to produce more resolved and complete works.
