While digital art is my main focus these days, I have always expressed myself through art from a very early age. I have learned to use most every medium available. At nine years old, my father gave me a carving knife, which never left my side as we camped the Sierra Nevada wilderness many weekends throughout the year. At age 11, we moved to New Jersey and my interest turned to oil painting when I began lessons with the well-known artist Fredrick W. Reiniger. Throughout my years as an artist I have worked in ceramics, glass, watercolors, fiber arts and dyes, pastels, pencils, photography, digital art and most every other media that comes to mind.
