I've studied art for almost 30 years, this being the reason my artwork is signed TLB my maiden name. I enjoy working with a variety of mediums from watercolor, acrylic, oils and mixed media. Photography has also been an important part of my art career. The use of photos can be an inspiration for future paintings.
As a child of the 80's, I found myself mesmerized watching art come to life with Bob Ross. And with my hometown of Orlando inspiration was always just a step away. You may notice that many of my works are of the ocean or the beach which also makes me feel closer to home.
Over the years, I've come to realize that every talent is a gift given by God for His purpose. Whether a piece of artwork inspires you to know Him more or simply fills you with the comfort of a beautiful view, please know that I'm simply the painter but He is the Creator.
I am not a trained photographer, just an artist with camera in hand. I do believe that as an artist it has allowed me to view the world from a different perspective. At time if your still and wait the right shot comes along. Other moments are caught at with in seconds never to be seen again. This is the joy of photography.
