A little context for my work:

My paintings have always leaned towards portraits with abstract expression to depict the personality and character traits of the subject depicted. While I do use famous people as muses from time to time, the portraits always become “Allusions” to those people, thus the title, “Portrait for…” opposed to “Portrait of…”. 

I have been drawing, printing and painting for over 30 years. In the mid-eighties I received a BFA in drawing and printmaking at the University of the Pacific, under Daniel Kasser. I then moved on to receive an MFA of Printing at Bradley University under the guidance of Master Printer Oscar Gillespie.
