Born and raised in Washington DC. The art programs there imprinted on me forever the wonders of art and the desire to always pursue personal goals of improving my artistic journey. I prefer oil painting as my medium of choice and enjoy painting beaches, landscapes, animals, and people, but not specific to one or the other. Influences are the classic masters in realism. I hope to encourage those who have an interest in art to get excited about learning, and help in the progression of art overall within our community.
