Location: Los Angeles, Ca. USA
Specialty: Custom Commissioned Paintings
|MY PURPOSE: I specialize in custom acrylic paintings. I'm not sure how one might categorize my style. ('Psycho-representational' seems right ) I'll let my paintings speak for themselves. I've been creating custom paintings for individuals for 3 years now. I have sold my paintings in just about every country in the world, and all over the United States. I have many collectors in Canada, Great Briton, the Netherlands, Japan and Australia.|
HOW WE DECIDE ON WHAT I WILL PAINT FOR YOU: I like to show my current and previous work, and have you tell me what you like most. I also will tell you about the paintings I want to paint, and need funding for. I have many.
MY BACKGROUND: I have no art school background, No formal art training.(which makes me by definition, a 'OUTSIDER ARTIST' I think) Born in San Francisco, California in the year 1951. Left school in 10th grade. Began drawing and painting at the age of 27. Continued to create artwork as an avocation for 20 years. During that time owned and operated an insurance brokerage firm in San Francisco, (a family business). Sold the firm in 1998 at age 47 after my home and art collection was destroyed by fire.I was lost for some 8 or 10 years after the fire terminated my lifestyle. Problems with drinking and drugs. Went into Rehab, bla, bla ...bla. Moved to Los Angeles to begin a new part of my life. Began full time art career in 2003 at age 52. Currently working as an artist in Los Angeles wanting very much to paint you a painting
I have shown in many galleries, mainly in San Francisco during the late 1980's and 90's. I stopped showing my work that way after establishing a good following and showing my works continuously on the internet. However, I will be participating in some shows this year in Los Angeles. (USA)
