As a kid I was always drawing and later graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 1979. I took art classes at the Torpedo Factory in Old Town Alexandria, but I didn't start to paint seriously until I became a Mr. Mom in 1991 and found my passion. Over the years I've painted lots of watercolors and eventually acrylics. Being a fan of Abstract Art, today I am trying to incorporate this form into areas of my Representational work. At times I feel as though I am painting like a truck diver.
