EVERY CHILD IS AN ARTIST
At age 9, I received a set of artists' oils, began painting and never looked back. Continuing to paint through high school, college (BFA Studio Art) and a lengthy advertising / marketing communications career (1973 - 2018).
ADULTS ARE ONLY KIDS GROWN UP
Like a regimen of exercise for an athlete, observation of great works of visual art throughout North America and Europe has helped condition me as a kid-grown-up art enthusiast, collector and painter.
PAINT THE LIGHT
An accomplished and well respected visual artist advised me during a postgraduate series of lessons, "Paint the light, not the object." The message still resonates every time I smell oils and pick up a brush.
