About the Artist A water-colorist from Thousand Oaks, CA. Painting Mother Nature and children are my passions. How I decide to paint an image is based how the image affects my soul. The image just cannot leave my mind. I begin to study it, ask questions of it, research it and then I just have to paint it. Every image I have drawn, painted or even sculpted in my life all came to fruition in this manner. Some paintings I can pump out within hours where others can take years. Every work of art is passion from my heart and soul. The more vibrant the colors in an image the more I need to capture it's true beauty.
