Big shoe box full of crayons, drawing pads, pencils, sketching my grandfather at the kitchen table, doodling in my school notebooks – these are my young childhood art memories. I have received numerous recognitions for my artistic talents during my school years, and during the summers I would take art classes.
After making a tough decision to not formally study art, I attended college for a degree in electrical engineering. While at Georgia Tech, I kept my interest in art by enrolling in life drawing classes and art appreciation at the School of Architecture. The life drawing instructor encouraged me to continue but engineering studies took up most of my energies.
Art was on the back burner while starting a new job and new family with several relocations from Georgia to Texas, then Colorado and last a big move overseas to The Netherlands. The three years overseas gave me the opportunity to visit various art museums -The Van Gogh Museum and The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, and The Louvre in Paris. This kept my love for art alive.
Since returning from overseas and settling in NH, I have been able to rekindle my study of art. Since 2002, I have been taking art instruction under Elaine Farmer studying watercolor, acrylics, pastels, and oils. Also, I have been studying under J.C. Airoldi since 2004. Oils and pastels are my main interests at this time. My love of the outdoors and the New England landscapes is the subject of most of my paintings.
