My Mentors

Thanks to: My family for supporting and nourishing my childhood dream of becoming an artist, especially my mother for helping me develop my artistic talent very early on in my life. I never experienced any opposition from my parents when at a very early age I expressed my desire to become a fine artist  They supported me and lovingly nurtured my talent.”  I also gives credit to Ann D. Schuler and John Michael Angel for teaching me the trade and how to use my talent to create masterful works of art.

I always admired the master specially Michelangelo da Merici da Caravaggio and IXX Century American trompe l’oeil painter William Harnett.  Contemporary artist that I admire includes French trompe l’oeil painter Jacques Poirier, Chilean painter Claudio Brabo, and Norwegian artist Odd Nerdrum among others.
