Color, geometry and motion are the driving elements in my paintings. I paint a wide variety of subjects including florals, landscapes, seascapes, abstracts and more. All my work is done with acrylic on canvas using palette knife. I've had no formal art training other than a couple of art electives while getting a business degree at the University of Illinois. My father was an architect and I grew up around drawing, sketching, design and composition from his work. I have always loved art, it just never occurred to me that you could make a living with it.
