I live in the Central Texas area and paint fine art in oil. I love to paint figures, portraits and still life. Much of my art learning experience has been in small group or seminars. I have studied under professional private art instructors – both live in a classroom, outdoors (plein air) and live online. The live internet experience has allowed me to experience mentorship with professional and well known artists from other countries around the world. After earning a degree in finance and business, I am blessed to be able to pursue my passion in life — painting in oil.
