What media do you work in?

I have been working a long time with special glazes to create many of the tuscany finishes we use. I love oils for painting portraits, acrylics I use when working on large landscape murals, and dislike the tightness of using watercolors. My raison d'etre has to be textured finishes using gels, plasters, and thick meidums.

What inspires you?

The great artists of the past laying or sitting for hours working on wet plaster to create some of the most inspiring profound fresco art of all time. Think.. the Sistine Ceiling. Michelangelo is my favorite Renaissance artist. Monet has to be my favorite Impressionist painter. "An artist who has a rich accumulation of skill yet lacks a repertoire of intense personal experiences remains a poor artist." Dr Walter Gaudnek

What kind of hands-on skill or project can you present to the group?

I am signed up already. But I could share how to make some of the latest Tuscany stucco finishes, some clay type related 3d works, or even simple toothpick art may suffice.

Do you have a website? If so, what is it?


I am a professional faux finisher and muralist. Specializing in old world, Tuscany, and Meditteranean finishes. You can see some of the work at­
