I've always had an interest in drawing and painting since childhood. Born and raised in Clifton, Texas, a small community with big art influence, I've been impacted by art all my life.
My interest in art and desire to help people in need led me to a profession in orthotics and prosthetics, where I have an outlet to create art in designing and fabricating braces and prosthetic limbs for people. This profession has also led me to an opportunity to do mission work where I have had the privilege to serve as a board member and volunteer prosthetist/orthotist with Prosthetic Promises In His Name, a non-profit focused in providing prosthetic services in Zambia, Africa.
I work mostly in acrylic painting on a small scale, though enjoy working in other mediums such as mixed media, colored pencil and watercolor. I also love doing mural painting, both indoor and outdoor, which is my outlet to work on a large scale. I don't have a specific style but rather like to experiment with different ideas and techniques, and my subject matter is varied. When people ask, I like to describe my style as "whatever pops into my head". My fascination with art is that it's never wrong---it's my expression and how I interpret things---in a world that so often feels black and white, that comforts me.
I seek to impact those around me, reflecting the love of Jesus, through all that I do.
