Tell us about yourself! I am a self taught acrylic painter. My artistic approach is rooted in the twin disciplines of realism and illustration. Architectural design and illustration are the basis of much of my professional life, which included serving as an architectural designer with Disneyland and designing Japan stores for Starbucks while living in Seattle. I began painting full time in 2013, although I have painted and drawn for nearly 50 years. I am seriously looking for gallery representation and/or interior designers that are looking for unique photorealistic, whimsical paintings. My paintings have won numerous awards and have been published in 10 nationally distributed art books. I have served as a painting and drawing judge for the Scholastic Art Awards which is one of my very favorite things to do! In addition to my current painting project I am teaching Realism in Acrylics at the Atelier Art Studio in Royal Oak, Michigan. Come check out the studio, it is a true gem here in metro Detroit I can be reached at:
