My Story

Art has been a part of my life since childhood.  Along with many others, I started following the wet-on-wet technique from William Alexander on TV in the 1980s and later Bob Ross, Wilson Bickford, and others. My art was put on hold while my wife and I raised our four children. Now that they are all grown up,  I picked up my brushes again, re-learning how relaxing and fun it is.  I love doing landscape and wildlife art the most.   As I look forward, one of my goals is to become a small group instructor in the wet-on-wet technique when I retire.  As a first step, I earned my training certification in the Bob Ross technique in 2020.  I have over 30  years experience teaching adults in my  career as a safety and  ergonomics specialist.  My goal is to help others to unleash the artist that lives within them.

*Wet-on-wet technique  is an age-old technique in which wet paint is added in layers, thin over thick paint, which allows a painting to be done in hours versus days to weeks.  This is a very stress free and creative method of painting.  It is a great technique in which to learn how to paint.
