- About -

As an artist, I desire to give glory and honor to God, who is worthy, through my 'creations'. I work to make something that will cause the viewer to stop and take notice in awe of the one true God. No creativity, knowledge or understanding would exist without Him. Born in Cleveland, Tennessee and 30 years later, born-again by faith in Jesus Christ. My mom said I was drawing as soon as I could hold a pencil. Art lessons and College Art never clicked for me but I continued to draw and paint for fun.
In 1999 I got serious about learning to teach drawing because there was a need for volunteers at a correctional institution for young men. I found the methods taught by Betty Edwards to be the very education I had searched for all my life. Her book 'Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain' was the foundation for a 12 week beginner drawing course that I have enjoyed teaching to children and adults of many ages and backgrounds. In 2009 I finished my life work. A 3'x4' painting of New Jerusalem coming down from heaven as described in Revelation 21. The title of this painting is 'I've Got A Mansion Just Over The Hilltop'
