I grew up in the Atlanta, Georgia area (small town called Lithonia to be exact) and started drawing at an early age. After high school, with no formal art training or clue as to what I was to do, vocationally speaking, I entered the commercial art program at Pensacola Christian College. There I was able to study under master artist and illustrator, Brian Jekel as a student as well as in the art studio of A Beka Book, where I worked for 3 years. After graduation I pursued a career of freelance illustration and continued learning my craft by studying with other great artists and illustrators both past and present.
I am fascinated by light and how it relates to edges and color. My goal is that each of my paintings capture the emotion of the subject, and not just the mere superficial facts. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if I can help in any way.
