I spend my days pursuing my one true passion: painting. For me, creating art is a form of meditation. I paint to escape. I paint to explore. As a medically retired Gulf War Veteran, I also paint to heal. My obsession with painting began when I picked up my first paintbrush at the age of seven. I’ve tried not to limit myself to one style. Instead, I keep an open mind that allows me to embrace different subjects and mediums that speak to me. Today, my passion for art is stronger than ever and I hope it’s reflected in every piece I create.
