live with the art you love.

artist - author - art educator
I'm a seer - a visual story teller. On the canvas, color and form begin as visual dialogue... a conversation. Images develop from layers of acrylic glaze that build from bottom to top as I intertwine drawing and painting in the composition which creates story making and short vignettes from a world I know and experience. A world I know well where the secret places reveal themselves to me as a whisper, a knowing, a longing, or a prayer.

If You Can Doodle, You Can Paint!
"I wanted to drop you a line and tell you how much I have enjoyed your book, "If You Can Doodle You Can Draw". I graduated Art School in 1971 so I've been making art a long time. Recently, I have found myself in one of those slumps where nothing is happening and your book has been a God sent. It has given me a new way to approach my ideas, clear my head and create images, so again, thanks". -- Mike
