I have been drawing and painting fish for as long as I can remember.  Growing up and living in Florida has allowed me to see a variety of marine life up close and personal.  I have spent many hours at local beaches swimming and snorkeling.  For years my family lived next door to a fish market on Siesta Key in Sarasota.  Every day I would go over just to watch the fish swim in the huge aquarium they had on display.  I particularly loved to see the clown fish.  That burst of orange contrasting with the white and black is one of natures finest masterpieces.  Yesterday I was interviewed for a feature and one of the questions was:  What inspires my art?  And my answer was that it was an accumulation of my life’s imagery.  It’s no wonder my portfolio is filled with the ocean…
