All children start out as artists, some of us still remember. I learned to draw to escape boredom in school; as a biologist I drew what I saw in tissue; as a tech writer I drew instruments to clarify procedures; as a teacher I had my students draw instruments to understand and truly see them.
My passion has always been the beauty of women. I tried to capture that in photography with my own studio and paid models. However, many do not take photography as art. I decided I would learn to paint to express more than a photo and to be taken seriously as an artist.
Although this site shows some of my present work, I am available for commissioned pieces. Please contact me for scope, price, and colors.
