“I have been drawing for as long as I can remember, but only started working with oil paint about four years ago. I was reluctant to try and work in such a historic medium, feeling intimidated to approach something I could never master, as I am fairly colorblind. But the more I work, the more obvious the creative benefits of being a self-taught painter become to me. I began exhibiting my work last year and have recently been featured in New American Paintings Vol. 104.”
