I was born in 1969 in Dallas, Texas and raised in Mesquite, Texas for the majority of my younger life. I now reside in Rockwall, Texas where I own a landscape business. The love of art started at a very young age for me. As with many young artists, drawing was the first thing I was introduced to and could do well. It was not until college that I discovered clay. For me three dimensional designs was something I could create in a fully immersed way. It is a challenge to make sure that each sculpture engages the viewer from all angles. Being somewhat of a rebel, I try to push the envelope on the finishes of my clay pieces. You will find wood stain, acrylic paint, and even electrical tape on some of my ceramic sculptures. I also like to incorporate wood and steel to add an extra element to the piece.
My abstract paintings are very organic. Many of my paintings are done outside on my property. The love of nature inspires my creativity and my high energy approach demands the freedom that being outside allows me. Experimenting is something that feeds my spirit, which is why I use unconventional tools other than paint brushes.
I have found some of my best work comes from the imperfections, unplanned events, and through experimentation. As I grow as an artist, I know that future is unknown but that is what drives me in this creative journey. My goal is to continue to challenge myself, to think outside of the box, and to bring something different and innovating to the art world.
