A showcase of works on paper
A showcase of works on paper
I consider myself so lucky to have had a very influential artist in my life while I was in high school. This person who to who I speak of is Linda Stevens Moyer now a world renown published watercolorist. Linda was an amazing instructor who saw my raw talent and inspired me to someday move in that direction.
I’m considered by others as a self-taught artist. I guess it’s because I never sought out a true art degree until many years after I sold my first piece. When I did decide to seek a degree, instead of choosing a fine art degree I pursued a degree from the Philadelphia Art Institute in the field of animation. This move took me many places including a three-day interview with Disney but, that adventure is a story for another day. I’ve had a gallery in my home, owned my own gallery and have had my work shown in galleries. I’ve received an honorable Governors Citation for my work and have won and lost a few art competitions along the way. But overall, I have to say, I have loved each and every minute and there’s defiantly more to come.
