Over the next few months I will be chronicling my development to a realist oil painter all the way from my first painting on canvas in the summer of 1999 to the present. When available I will also include some drawings from my childhood through my early twenties. Along the way I will share what I have learned about materials, techniques, the books I read, and courses I took to bring my painting to levels I never thought I could achieve. Once I reach the present day I will include step by step demonstrations and a behind the scenes look at my current Studio and Gallery in Naples, FL. I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I have. In the meantime, you can view my current work by clicking on the gallery tab above.
