Category / Medium: Paintings / Drawings - Oil
I have always drawn people and that led me to studying human anatomy in college and a career as a medical illustrator. I specialized in surgical illustration which requires very tight renderings. However I longed to paint outside the lines and to not have to make the arteries red and the veins blue. So now I am a fine artist working to convey images with fewer details and more overall freedom. I still paint people, but find more and more that I am going outside with my oil paints in my backpack to follow an arroyo or a mountain stream and learn about the bones of the land I live in.
