A native of California and a visual communicator. My creative journey began at a very early age and continued well into college. I even ventured briefly into art school (Otis College of Art and Design), so I’m "formally" self-taught. I’ve worked as a graphic artis, production photographer and muralist, but my true joy has always been teaching art to children.
During my thirty-plus years as a creator, I’ve shown in several galleries and was contracted for five-years with LACMAs emerging artist, Arts Rental and Sales Gallery -ARSG. My work has also shown in Pierce College Gallery, Palos Verdes Design Center and Library, and other public venues. I have presented art in Los Angeles Cultural Affairs African AmericanHeritage Calendar, for past three years.I am also trained as a Clinical Art Therapist but I do not practice.
