“My art career began as a child.  I won Best of Show ribbons in the County Fair for oil paintings and had my first commissions at eight years old.  In high school, I entered beauty pageants for scholarship money and world peace.


I pursued my talent at UCRiverside and spent five years in construction and property management, with a Certificate of Construction Industry Tech from Clemson University.  I understand now that my obligation as an artist is to create peace at the ground level.  Art that does good is my life’s work.  I am the change I’d like to see.  As a lifelong artist, I have two areas of focus – color that evokes and use of space.”
