I have enjoyed art for as long as I can remember. When I was little I loved to paint and draw. I studied art history at University of California Irvine and grew up in Long Beach and Newport Beach. I now live in Costa Mesa, CA.
I mostly paint with oil on canvas, but enjoy different mediums as well. Recently I've tried acrylic pouring which is very fun and I plan to experiment more with that.
I inherited my passion for art from my dad. He was a painter and sculptor. He passed away in 2016 and painting has been a way to still connect with him on some level. Local landscapes and beautiful skies are my most recent inspirations. Check out his artwork at http://stevenlooman.com. It's no longer for sale but it is beautiful work.
