I am a product of nature.
Always I have observed details. Trees, people, clouds, sky. As a child I would go off by myself so I could "see." With my eyes...not with what I might think something would look like. I began drawing, so my Mother says, when I picked up a pencil and never put it down. I was 3 years or so. My work is not, to me, exceptional or special. I paint and draw the way I see light or storms or nature. Realistically.
