Q: Tell me something about your history in the creative arts. Did you have a formal school education or are you self taught?
A: For the most part, I am self taught. Been drawing since I was 1st able to hold a pencil and painting since I was about 16. I did eventually go to art school after high school, but sadly the technical side of my art training lacked. I did enjoy what life drawing and painting I was able to receive though.
