I am a self-taught artist by and large. It's just something that's always been a part of me. I have been a freelance portrait artist/illustrator since 1978, but only considered doing this as a profession in 1995, after having a serious medical setback that rendered me unable to do much else.
Currently, I am delving into screen printing on T-Shirts, and am also looking into Dye-Sublimation.
