I am a painter with a passion for creating meaningful imagery and an interest in the greeting card industry. I was classically educated and am a huge fan of great poetry. I try to incorporate some of this influence into my work, avoiding clichéd lines and rhymes and sticking to the magnificently-phrased statements of great men and women. In addition to being a painter, I also play guitar and am a poet and a calligrapher of sorts. I’ve won cash prizes in several poetry contests and I use my calligraphy skills to embellish my paintings.
While I’ve acquired much of my skill as an artist through nature journaling and continue to focus a lot on nature and the outdoors, I want my art to portray more than just the natural world. I’m still very much a learning-painter and a young one, but I hope that I am or at some time will be able to capture through my work some tiny part of the Joy Inexpressible and Full of Glory.
