I was born with pencil and paper in my hand, and formal training began when at the young age of 7 my parents got me a private art instructor. I used oil paints exclusively until after my college years. It was in the early 1990's that I discovered Prismacolor pencils, and a love affair was born. They are my main medium now, although I will occasionally work with acrylic paint or even pastels when the mood strikes. I have to admit to having a love-hate relationship with watercolor as a medium. I love to use them, but the formal oil painter in me hates the process.
Photography is an accidental talent of mine. By this I mean, I never even picked up a camera until I was around 20. Primarily I used photography as a way to research my next drawing or painting. As time went by, people began to comment on my photography as an art in itself and a photographer was born. I have worked professionally as both an Illustrator and Photographer for the past 15 years.
I am always looking to try new things, to evolve the work that I'm doing or to just do something completely different. I tend to revisit the same subjects, but I like to think I do it a little bit differently each time.
