Early in my life, I realized that art and creativity were my preferred classes whereas math and science were tolerated, as it allowed attendance in art & music.   My college studies began in Fine Arts but changed to Design and Architecture as the institutions at the time were promoting extremes of abstract creativity and expressionism.  I maintained my desire for creativity by becoming an Architect along with working in pastels and photography. As my Architectural Profession progressed, designs became less creative and aligned with functional or regulatory requirements, as the avenues of creativity waxed and waned as time permitted.  Approximately 13 years ago I had the fortune, of meeting an excellent art teacher who instructed using the renaissance method of painting.  In addition to the 4 years of regularly scheduled classes, I now attend workshops and have continued to paint using different media in both studio and plein air.  I find plein air painting the most challenging but rewarding experience of capturing the essence of the environment into your work.
