I started drawing pictures as a child and enjoyed art in school. I am basically self-taught but have learned quite a bit from books and information that is available on-line. I began painting in oils and acrylics in my teens then ventured out to other mediums like pastels and lately have been focusing on watercolours. I have done a few exhibits and hope to pursue more in the future. I have been a professional musician since the late '60's and still am, which has given me the opportunity to perform throughout North America and record several albums and singles which have received airplay worldwide. I am truly thankful for the gift of art and music and I enjoy each opportunity there is to express it.
