I am a self-taught artist from Las Vegas, NV and have lived in Suwanee for the last 8 years. My journey into art began when I was very young. My mother created beautiful paintings and my father built furniture. My grandfather was always creating things out of metal. When I was 10 years old I went to an outdoor art festival when I bought my very first piece of original art. I had found a painting of the town I lived in and was so excited in what the artist had created. That artist worked with me so that I could buy the painting with my own money. That painting still hangs in my house to this day. When I was in high school my parents owned an art gallery which filled our lives with art and I was able to interact with many of the artists that showed in their gallery. This had a profound effect on how I viewed the role of art in our everyday life. I have created art for friends and family for most of my life. In the last three years I have entered the public art world showing in art festivals, art galleries and participating in art competitions.

My passion for being an artist is to recreate the beauty around me and I love to give something old a new life in unexpected ways. I use a multitude of mediums in unexpected combinations and try to recycle everyday objects as often as possible. My biggest desire is to encourage everyone to own an original piece of art that they love.
