I grew up in Chicago, but now live in Portland, Oregon. I have attended school at the Art Institute of Chicago and at Ringling College of Art & Design, but mostly I am a self-taught artist. I like to paint with oils on canvas or board. Living in the Northwest, I find most of my subject matter in nature, whether itís a landscape or a pile of driftwood on the beach. I'm also interested in mechanical objects or anything that has unique coloring or surface characteristics. Many of my paintings have been influenced by my days as an editorial artist.
