The Artist in Chief
I expressed myself through art from a very early age, learning 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, and most every other media that comes to mind.
