Biography

I grew up in Virginia and obtained a number of degrees from colleges/universities in Arkansas, Mississippi, North Carolina, and Virginia. I served in the military, and have worked for a number of companies domestically and internationally.

Never realizing that I had any real creative ability, I did not start painting and drawing until late 2010. In November of that year, my wife asked if I wanted to go with her to art class. I thought it might be fun so I went. During the class, the art instructor said that I might as well do something while I was there. She said to paint whatever I wanted to so I got a small canvas, sketched a scene, and started to paint.

After completing my first painting, a seascape, I discovered that I really enjoyed painting. Because of this, I began to sketch scenes and then would paint the ones I liked best. My drawings and painting have included still life, seascapes, outdoor scenes, cats, birds, flowers, historical castles, and buildings.
