I was born in Chicago on the 02-28-77 I spent my early childhood in San Francisco under the strict yet loving care of my parents. who where Rosicrucian priests.

At a early age i Began to draw using perspective and with lust i tought myself to draw and sculpt.

My parents would never allow action figures or toys that represented war so I began sculpting my own out of bee’s wax and many of the things i resented as a child became the very building blocks of my artistic growth.

    I love this! Something about the ‘silver lining’ clouds in the background really grab me too. Great colours here.
