I was born in Providence, Rhode Island in 1962 and moved to Idaho in 1973 and I have been an artist as long as I can remember! There were times as a toddler I would 'gesture-draw' on my bed-room wall with any writing untensil I could get my hands on (much to the dislike of my mother), and throughout my days in school I would do the same type of art-work in my text-books (much to the dislike of several teachers). There was a time in the 80's when I didn't do much art on paper/canvas but in the back of my mind my interest in the craft never left me. In my later years I've had the absolute pleasure of studying under Russian-Impressionist Marina Zavalova, and she taught me so much about colors and energy in painting. I consider myself an impressionist and am a STRICT plein-air artist when it comes to painting/pastel/drawing. My major influences in art are Pierre Bonnard, Sergei Bongart, Marina Zavalova, Ovanes Berberian, and Barry Raybould to name a few. I tend to lean on the 'warm side' when using oil paints and pastels, and I am fond of charcoal and mechanical pencils with drafting lead in them when sketching/drawing. I am currently studying with the Virtual Art Academy and am learning so much about the foundations of art. I'm really excited to be part of Fine Art America and I am looking forward to enjoying many years with the FAA staff and members!.
