I never learned how to color inside the lines literally or metaphorically.
I attended art school, studied painting in college, and art therapy in graduate school, but feel that I have spent my time since then attempting to unlearn whatever it was they were trying to teach. My feeling is that I am self-taught — I believe that I never did catch on to whatever it was I was supposed to catch on to.
My influences have been the Northern European Renaissance masters, the Pre-Raphaelites, the nineteenth century Symbolists, and Visionary Artists.
I have lived in Yachats for almost 13 years and make paintings and murals. I do not call what I do art, I just do what I do.
