For centuries masters of art have influenced pupils of study to expand upon style and skill. I have been most influenced by Jackson Pollock and the Impressionists. I mostly work in oils, usually mixing the paint on the canvas, not on the pallet. My abstracts give me a sense of freedom. They are similar to Pollack's work with my own little twist, free-flowing paint and style. When I create a landscape, it gives me a place to escape from reality. I have had an interest in art since my childhood years. But I did not attempt to create my own works of art until the age of 38. My inspirations come from my dreams and my vivid imagination. I much enjoy creating my art pieces. When I am finished with a piece, a great sense of satisfaction follows. This is the very same feeling that comes over me when I see others enjoying and appreciating my art.
