My grandfather painted all his life, encouraging me and my sister's artistic genes by setting up little easels in the garden whenever we visited as children. My sister graduated from Ringling School of Art to become a successful illustrator of children's stories (www.christensenart.com). But this artist leaned towards trial and error to emerge with a bent towards experimentation. While my art interests are diverse, fused glass and painting remain my real passions and exemplify how my style has evolved from realism to impressionism. I enjoy being challenged by artistic problem solving projects. When I was 21, I began exhibiting paintings in street festivals. Aging gracefully now, I prefer the ease of gallery shows and remain only a part-time gypsy. Called as a prophet to the living God of Israel, I strive always to bring glory to God through my work.
