Sometimes........ life 

When I was quite young both my mother and my grandmother helped me to see the beauty of art in many ways. As my excitement grew I started aspiring to become a great artist, and then life slammed the door. I was told at every turn that there was no future in art and that I should change my course of focus before it was too late. This sapped the excitement out of me and before I hit my mid teens I put down my pencils and my brush and have regretted it ever since.

Over 25 yrs later I decided it was time to start chasing my dream again and I have never looked back. Now with many more distractions but with a renewal of energy and the support of my loving wife, I'm finally doing what I love to do. Don't let anyone tell you its too late or not worth it because I have found that it is never too late and always worth it.


Now I hope to inspire and entertain others using art. I have met some of the greatest people I could have ever hoped of knowing because of this new journey. Thank you for taking a few moments to stop by and check out what I have to say. I hope you leave with more than what you came with.
