About Artist

Basic Information

  • Artist Statement

    I enjoy creating oil paintings with a humorous touch and doing the Adequate Man comic because both give me a way to share with others my sense of humor. I have enjoyed art all my life and grew up admiring those who created art. That is why I’m thankful that I now have a chance to create art. I hope others will enjoy my art as much as I have enjoyed other people’s art.
