Artist Statement: “My love for painting has always been enhanced by my love to teach.Any artist who thinks they understand painting should try teaching.  They will soon realize how little they know.  I have always felt that I have a responsibility to teach because I have been given a generous gift from my teachers (i.e. Bill Parks, Ted Smuskiewicz, and Richard Schmid) and it should be passed on to the next generation of painters who share this love of art.
