"I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Advertising and Fine Arts from Louisiana Tech University. Following my degree program, I worked as an ad agency Art Director before trading my Pantone swatches for a brush and palette. I paint in oils and am motivated by color, immediacy of stroke, composition, the camaraderie of other artists, and ultimately the desire to evolve as an artist. I strive to create paintings that communicate confidence in execution and that exhibit a fresh, intuitive, and spontaneous quality. I will paint till I can paint no more. When I'm not painting, I'm thinking about what I want to paint next. I can't not paint.
