It is said “To know a man, you have only to walk a mile in his shoes”.
This is true for most. But for the artist, you only have to look upon his
art. For the art is a reflection of the artists soul.

My artwork recreates the beauty of nature. My paintings evoke a sense
of wonder, awe and relaxation. The subjects of my wildlife paintings serve as a reminder to us of a world that needs vigilant protection. From whales to hummingbirds, I often choose animals that are overlooked or on the verge of extinction. Bringing these animals to my canvas helps reminds us that they are here.

My painting style is quite versatile and ranges from photo realistic to contemporary mixed media and even a combination of the two. I have found that the use of acrylics as a medium offers me the best means in which to create my art. I can use it like oil paint or watercolor to get the exciting results that I need. The possibilities are endless. I continue to experiment and push the envelope in my mixed media artwork. This keeps my art exciting and fresh.

As an artist in Las Vegas, I have been expanding my artistic creativity and growth within the art community. I enjoy participating in art events, shows and exhibitions.
It is a privilege to share my passion through art with the art world.

Resume:

I have been involved in the arts my entire life. Art and music have always played a major role. I began drawing cartoon and comic strips as a child and in my teens I devoted my energies to music. I have preformed for thousands of people, been on the radio and television and owned my own recording studio. With an exciting music career behind me, I refocused my creativity in art.
I have launched a successful souvenir company here in Las Vegas. I managed new product development, product design, marketing and distribution.
I became a licensed StarScapes artist and personally developed a transforming sky mural. The murals change from a daytime sky scene to a nighttime star field.
When it comes to my art work, I paint what I enjoy and care about or something that pushes my boundaries as an artist. I joined the Vegas Artist Guild for the networking possibilities and to help other artists. I have served on the board of directors of the Vegas Artist Guild as the Treasurer and Vice President.
I am the owner of Ultimate Interior Painting. I do faux painting, murals, sky murals and kids rooms. I have also had several commissioned art work pieces.
