I grew up in Roseville, California and started painting while I was in high school during the 1970s. My medium of choice is acrylic on canvas. I am a self-taught artist, using a combination of pallet knife and brush to create a variety of textures. I prefer using large canvases to create landscapes and abstract art.
Some of my painting style and technique has been inspired by Vincent van Gogh. I've also been influenced by Bob Ross. Natural wonders such as waterfalls, canyons, mountains, and crashing waves often inspire me to create my own interpretation of their beauty.
