As a child, I depended a lot on my creativity as a means of entertainment. I won my first contest at age 4, a bad drawing of Cinderella. From there, I continued to create.
In 1987, I moved to Las Vegas where I developed further interest in art. Though I was 12, I attended adult education classes at UNLV where I studied a summer semester worth of watercolors. In junior high and high school, I was fortunate enough to be mentored by the same art teacher who allowed me to experiment and grow as an artist.
In 2000, I graduated from UNLV with a BFA in Art and a BA in Film, and since then my work has been published on magazine covers, book covers and occassionally used as decor on tv sets. My self described style I would say is Surrealism. My primary elements of interests include nature, color, spirituality, people and fantasy, and I work in mostly oil, watercolor, acrylic, digital art, and using found objects.
