Welcome to my site. Here is a bit about me:
I'm an artist living in San Diego, CA with my wonderful wife.
I split my time between the art and doing web development for Caxy.
I grew up in South Africa, but I was not born there. I've lived in Texas, Virginia, Toronto, Chicago, and San Diego, so where am I from? I'm trying to figure that out myself.
I've run 5 marathons, one of which I ran virtually barefoot.
I run a small studio with my buddy. We sometimes have classes, workshops, and parties.
I'm a total INTJ.
You can find out what I've been up to more recently here.
More about my art background:
I graduated from the School of Representational Art in Chicago, Illinois. The School of Representational Art (since closed) provided a four-year, highly integrated curriculum of training that replicates the Atelier method of art instruction modeled after the academic painting schools of 19th century Europe. The instructors at The School of Representational Art were part of a lineage of instruction that goes back to Richard Lack in Minneapolis, R. H. Ives Gammell of Boston, William Paxton, of Boston. I also studied at the Academy of Realist Art in Toronto, the Palette and Chisel Academy in Chicago, and the Art League School in Alexandria, Virginia. I also have a Bachelors of Individualized Studies from George Mason University with a concentration in Classical studies.
