Sidney Tuggerson, Jr
My art education has been limited to periodic courses over the years. However, I have been drawing and painting since the age of six. As a youngster, I experimented with crayons, watercolor, pencil, and colored pencil.
I did not paint for many years but returned to it in the 1990s. Because it had been so long, I began by reacquainting myself with oil, acrylic, and watercolors. I am largely self-taught, and while experimenting with various mediums, I also became comfortable working from my fertile imagination as well as life.
I am at a point in my life that I can devote extended periods of time to my passion and continue my exploration.

My work involves experimenting with abstract shape, angle and form, light against dark. In addition to abstracts, I work in natural forms. Often, my work contains a great deal of detail. I am an intuitive artist, working from both my imagination and live subjects. I have a fondness for still life and flowers. Color drives my work.
It has been said that my work is colorful and joyful. I love this description as I try to bring the same qualities to my life.
