All my life I've drawn or painted. In grade school I was always in charge of decorating the bulletin boards.
My primary media are pastel, acrylic and oil. Subject matter varies. I get bored with a limited range and might follow a portrait with an abstract to get into a different kind of energy. Impressionist and minimalist styles are my all-time favorites.
Currently I do some private teaching as well as continuing to exhibit. My major awards were in the 90's. Since then, I have lost interest in much competition and simply focus on offering my best painting, while always searching for ways to make things better.
Painting...it's what I do and some would say, with the exception of writing, my only real talent.
