I am a visual artist currently living in Katy, Texas (just west of Houston). I specialize in painting oil on canvas, and drawing charcoal, pastel and oil pastel on paper, as well as dabble in most other two-dimensional work. I have been drawing and painting most of my life, probably since the first time someone gave me my first box of crayons. I was discovered in second grade by my art teacher, Mrs. Lammers, most likely because I wasn’t paying attention in class. Since then, I have loved all things art and prefer shopping for art supplies over shopping for clothes. I spend most of my time in my studio. My goal is to the best visual artist I can be, to perfect my painting and drawing techniques, to put a smile on the face of humanity, to preserve nature, the natural world, our environment, and create a greater appreciation for art, nature, freedom and artistic expression among the masses.
