"A self-taught artist for over twenty-seven years, I followed my passion for realism through the mediums of pencil, charcoal, pastel, watercolor and oils. Reading the eyes of animals, for years, gave way to telling stories of travels-through the portraiture of beautiful and historical places visited. I hope my art is a reminder of your own story there, or, encourages you to go make one"?bj
