biography: overview

1983–1986
1987-present

Fine artists in general share many similarities in the way we evolve. We all deal with the same fundamental realities—how to learn our craft, how to market our work, and how to keep afloat financially while we evolve. In this biography I lay out the basic path I have been on including some of the challenges I have faced. Learning to paint is a long road. What keeps me going through some of the hard times is the indescribable feeling I experience as a painting emerges out of nothing. That experience is like nothing else. It drives me to surge on.
