BioI regard myself as a student of the art and enjoy painting nature. My career in Commercial Real Estate led me away from painting for several years . It was a blessing, because I forgot all my bad habits and started taking oil painting and drawing classes at Scottsdale Artist School in 2006. I have had numerous teachers but give credit to my favorite Teachers who reside here in Middle Tennessee, for helping me take my painting skills to the next level. Thank you, James Hemsworth, Roger Dale Brown, Kevin Menck and Pat Thompson for your tremendous skills as both an educator and an artist. I look forward to getting to know all of you.
