Now in his own words:

I would have to say first of all that my artistic talent is God given.  I started artwork by taking lessons at the age of 10, with my first love being faces.  I took lessons for 2 years, but did not become fully interested in artwork until the age of 16.

Most of my subject work at that time was mostly sports related.  Growing up in a sports oriented family gave me the desire to be the best at what I do.  Art was always just a hobby for me growing up, until 4 years ago when I decided to make it a full time profession.

My first memories of artwork, were sitting on my father's lap as a young child watching him doodle things like army men and cartoon characters.  My older sister and brother took lessons with me, and also share the same talent.

My desire to be the best at what I do led me to try various mediums and techniques.  It took a lot of research, trial and era to show me the different areas of work that I felt most comfortable with.  As I grow older I'm determined that art is a never ending lesson.  Never be afraid to try new things.  

In the last 4 years I decided to take the Sports Theme to a new level by trying a different canvas for my work.  My Sports Artwork is now being painted on jerseys, ball, helmets, and anything else that will accept paint.

Through that new canvas I have had the pleasure of working with several different professional athletes to help raise money for their charities.  I have fond memories of helping Troy Brown and Mike Bartrum.  I helped them raise thousands from 5 hand painted jerseys that were auctioned off at their charity event a few years back.
