He has studied at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, an Art School in Oahu, Hawaii, the Creative Arts Group in Sierra Madre California, and has studied with various mentors. He is known among local artists and his current art reflects his love for nature’s beauty. He derives much of his inspiration from the earth and sea, using oil and acrylic on canvas. Some of his favorite artists are Mark Rothko, Seurat, and Wolf Kahn.
