I am a Texas artist in the Dallas/ Fort Worth area. In addition to being a painter, I am also an adjunct professor of art history at Dallas Baptist University. The act of creating has always been a powerful force in my life. Since I was a child I have always been happiest whenever I was making something. Painting appeals to my desire to create because it allows me to respond to the beauty I see in the world around me, and hopefully bring some of that to everyone who looks at my work.
