"MY WORK HAS TAKEN ME TO MANY PLACES"
I was born in Michigan in 1979, as the youngest of one brother and two sisters. My parents were strong in their faith and raised me in a loving Christian home. At 19, I attended WOLBI for a year and decided then that I wanted to pursue the arts. I actually had my first studio at Poe Mill, and in 2006, I had the opportunity to be a part of Art Crossing in downtown Greenville, where my studio is currently located.
My art styles vary, and include charcoals, oils, acrylics, graphite, and other mixed mediums. I love to work with individuals on commission pieces, as well as live performances. My live performances range from settings such as formal conferences and expo shows to concerts and cruises. I also perform at intimate wedding receptions. These, too, are painted live.
WHAT I BELIEVE: MY FAITH GUIDES ME
The focus of my work is to capture the essence of what I create, whether it’s in a person, an object, or anything you can imagine or envision; I will capture it for you to enjoy for years and years. I come from a family of strong values, and I would describe my faith as a personal relationship with my Lord, Jesus. Christ has given me the strength to provide a level of intensity that pours onto my canvas at each event. Every stroke, every detail I do to the glory of God. If I didn’t believe in what I was doing, you would be able to see it in my work.
