"Art, to me, is a form of liberating expression. My style embraces the freedom of creation, treating it as a spiritual activity rather than a rigid imitation or meticulously planned endeavor. My artworks mirror my travels, dreams, thoughts, wit, and heart, all shared with the world through what I consider clever resourcefulness."

Born in Richmond, Virginia, in 1966, I grew up surrounded by the scenic beauty of a valley nestled between two mountains and the Shenandoah River. The second oldest of seven siblings, my unconventional upbringing was filled with exciting experiences. Raised by artist parents—my mom, a painter, and dad, a sculptor—I was nurtured creatively from an early age. Their influence sparked my curiosity for life and diverse cultures.


Venturing into the Peace Corps led me to West Africa, where I immersed myself in traditional African art, learning invaluable techniques from skilled Malian artisans. Traveling abroad shaped both my personal and artistic perspectives. Returning from Mali, I obtained another degree in education and taught in the Canary Islands while honing my sculpting skills.


After three years abroad, I returned to Virginia, started a family, and earned a master's degree in sculpture and painting. With over thirty years of teaching and creating art, I currently reside in Michigan. My sculptures and paintings have been showcased locally and internationally, represented in galleries across two states. Collaborating with galleries, collectors, and communities in Michigan and Virginia, I create commissioned pieces. Grateful for my supportive wife and the metropolitan atmosphere of Lansing, Michigan, I continue to envision a dazzling future.
