I started painting miniatures in 1979, but only discovered acrylics around 1999, after far too many years painting with enamels. I have discovered that I love painting miniatures for other people. So I have made it my full time occupation. I paint miniatures all day every day. I get inspiration from my D&D game -- I paint the miniatures I need for the game, and the paint is often still wet when they hit the game table. I really enjoy making customized miniatures for my player's characters. I also get inspiration from seeing the work of other painters. I have been painting Reaper miniatures since around 2000. I have lurked on the Reaper forums for quite a while and I am really glad that I decided to start posting here. I have found this community very supportive and inspiring. My painting has improved by leaps and bounds since I started posting here in 2017. I finally made it to ReaperCon for the first time in 2019, and I taught some classes at the Virtual ReaperCon Live in 2020. Stoked to be participating in the Reaper Virtual Expo in March 2021!
