I began drawing and painting at age two. Continuing through primary school, high school and culminating at Atlanta College of Art in the 1970's. Following that was portraiture study with Roman and Constantin Chatov and a stint with the Portrait Society of Atlanta and Atlanta Artists Club. I'm now 63, retired to be a full time artist and loving getting out of bed between four and six o'clock and painting all day. About 18 months ago my Lord commanded me to use the talent He gave me. I don't know how or why but I'm just "loading the wagon" (when Jacob and his sons were going to Egypt to see Joseph).
