"I wanted to be an artist since my earliest days, and have pursued it as a career ever since I graduated college. I was lucky enough to have known James Browne for many years who mentored me in Watercolor Illustration and guided me into an artistic field. I knew I wanted to create my work in Oils, and spent 3 years going to an Atelier full time under the instruction of Neilson Carlin who really brought out the best in me. My galleries are a representation of my most recent work, as well as my favorite paintings over the last 10 years."
