I was born in Pontiac, Michigan in 1970. I starting drawing and painting at the age of 5. I have always been influenced and attracted to many art forms including sculpting, woodworking, painting and photography. I enjoying sharing my way of seeing things with an artistic approach. I look to capture a moment in time or the essence of a person place or thing. The magic is in capturing the moment of a time and place. I graduated from Wayne State University in December of 2014 and received my B F A. I currently teach at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center where I share my passion with others.
