About this pro

I am a gallery artist with 20 years of exhibitions all over the country. I currenlty have an art gallery in Laguna Beach, CA. I graduated from Platt art and design in 1994. I paint in oils, acrylics and mixed media on every different substraight and can paint every subject.

I have partnered in galleries and major artist websites and have helped artists create, refine and market their work to the public. 

I can paint any subject, but there are 4 subjects that I gravitate most to: Landscapes, Seascapes, Abstract and Figureative.

After a long career in the gallery circut Im teaching and painting in the Studio in South Orange County.

I enjoy the feeling of spreading a hand made craft to budding artists. I also enjoy the joy I see in artists after they create a painting.
