Why would you join?
As a full time professional artist, my career has taken me around the world and given me a lifetime of experience which I love to share. My favorite part of my journey has been the teaching. I have taught across the United States as well as China, Turkey, and Europe.
My journey started as an art major in college. But as many do, I married, had children and was active in our family business. It''s not everyday you meet an artist who also builds racing engines!! At any rate, I realized one day that it is was now or never for my art, and that very day, only having painted occasionally, I made the decision.
Because I was starting from the beginning, I had to hone my skills, paint profusely, and build my career. I started selling, garnered galleries, printed reproductions, entered shows, won awards, and started teaching and mentoring. This journey has provided a lot of experience (not all good) and a great deal of information on dealing with the art world.
My experience gives me the confidence to help you through the maze and hopefully benefit from my mistakes and successes. Along the way, the one thing I truly wanted, was someone to guide me and validate my decisions. A mentor!!!!! Someone who had been THERE!!!!!
