I've been an artist since the time I could hold a crayon and draw on my parent's walls. My first love was animation, particularly cartoons and comic book characters. I would sit in class and write stories and then draw cartoon characters to illustrate the action on each page. My teachers were not fond of my lack of enthusiasm towards the subjects they were teaching. My history teacher in high school caught me drawing something and stated that art class was down the hall. For a moment I acted as if I was going to stand but then smiled and sat back down. I had the highest GPA in the class even without paying attention and he knew it. I also have a passion for music and I majored in music education in college. I'm currently a clarient player for the 208th Army Band in Concord, NC. I write fantasy stories online and occasionally my stories make their way into my paintings or the paintings find their way into my stories. I enjoy blending all three art forms of music, writing, and painting into my art.
