Visual Art – Houston, TX

I earned my BFA in studio painting from Texas State University in 1993 I then went on to earned a second bachelor’s degree in marine science from Texas A&M, Galveston in marine science. It was during my pursuit of my BS in marine science that I procured my first professional gallery show at Buchanan galleries in Galveston, Texas. I gained one of my best collectors from Galveston real estate business woman Charna Graber. I am a native Texan born in Houston. I have been drawing since I can remember and this is obvious in my paintings as they take on a drawing feel to them. My recent works recall the childhood art classes I attended at the Glassell School of Art in Houston. I began study art classes at Houston Community College under Surge K and finished my studies Texas State University San Marcos, Texas. I had no idea how to earn a living as an artist. So a few shows in darken wine bars and restaurants I ended up at Texas A&M, Galveston to study marine science. And it was the sciences that improved my arts and my art that drove my science endeavor that landed me in the off shore oil and gas industry. This afforded me the currency to buy art materials and an open ticket to travel the world infusing my mind with a wealth of images and experiences. ...more
