About Me

From a very young age I was always surrounded by the arts. My sister, who was three years older than me was taking accordion and piano classes. I was always intrigued with her creativity. As I got older I followed in her foot steps with music and also took piano classes. Throughout my childhood I also remember receiving paintings in the mail from my Grandfather, who use to love painting in his free time.  From the time I can remember, my Mother always had her camera in-hand. She captured some great photos from my childhood and continues to stun me with her beautiful landscape photography. Walking in my Mother’s footsteps, I developed a passion for the still image. I first learned the art of photography while I was still in high school and took classes during and after school. Eventually my Mother and I built our own darkroom and enjoyed shooting photos and developing in the comfort of our home.

It wasn’t until my teen years that I began to realize that it was my entire family that inspired me to become an artist. It was almost impossible to ignore. Throughout high school and my first years of college I studied fine art and animation. I was also fortunate enough to meet a Disney Animator during my last few years of high school who really mentored me and helped me bring my skills to another level. We still remain friends today and continue working on various projects together.

In late 2004, I started teaching fine art. I had the great opportunity of working with students of all ages. Teaching really gave me a different perspective on art and helped me improve upon my own skills. Some of my greatest achievements in art happened during my teaching years. To be able to take a student who couldn’t draw or paint previously and coach them through the basics of fine art, to finally see them painting a masterpiece just months later is truly the most rewarding thing in art.

I am continually using Photoshop, Dreamweaver and other Adobe apps to keep my skills current.  Visit my personal “Members Only” Photoshop Training website here.
