My taste is eclectic — variety is the spice of life!  The list of artists whose work has influenced me is long and diverse.

I believe that the best examples of art from almost all periods, styles, and places offer something to help an artist improve, even if limited to a subconscious level.

Thus, a lot of movements interest me and inspire me:  impressionism, post-impressionism, fauvism, modernism, abstract expressionism, pop, and more.

For me, the most engaging, exciting, and accessible art in history occurred from around 1860 until about 1975.  A few of my favorites include:

I hope you see even a little of their work in mine.
