I have been creating art since a very early age. I was born in Conway SC, and raised in Opa-Locka Florida until the age of 14. I spent my teenage years in Petersburg VA, where I excelled in track and field,football, and my passion, art. I sold my first painting in the fourth grade to a lawyer in Miami, whose name I can’t remember for the life of me. While attending Bunche Park Elementary I was in the gifted Program for Art, and won numerous art awards at the Dade County Youth Fair. During high School I displayed my work at the Virginia Museaum of Art. I was accepted to the Internation Fine Arts College but decided to take a track and field scholarship at St. Augustine’s College, in Raleigh NC. After a short stint as a sprinter, I decided to focus on my true love…art.
My art style has evolved over the years, as does the ambivalent mind of creative souls, yet the themes of overcoming struggle, love, motherhood, fatherhood, and thought-provoking positive images always find their way to my canvas.”
