I have sketched and painted since I was 3 years old.

I cannot recommend a career as an artist though.
Only a handful of remarkable people actually make a consistent real wage as a painter.

If you do choose such a path, plan on being either poor or supported.
Having said that, I believe that painting, like writing, is a most agreeable indulgence.

I paint in one of two major styles. Abstracts and life.
In both cases there needs to be elements of a story or a feeling.
When it comes to painting real people I prefer dancers mid-air, in flight!
