I am an Artist
with a passion for creative collaboration.
What I Do
Learn Create and Share are the basic values that drive my creative process. Outside of my professional career I have a desire to help build up artists to discover their potential. I have a vision for workshops and classes that take a collaborative approach to learning. Taking on projects together and discovering new skills while innovating new techniques. I am currently in the process of working on a project like this in order to discover the practical ways to make this dream a reality.
I am also a husband and father of two girls. My wife's motivation and drive inspires me, and my children's life and imagination move me. Although my family life may seem like a separate entity from my work life, it is a part of the fabric of what makes me who I am. My goals and hopes influence them as much as they influence me.
I am also a Christian. There are many misrepresentations of the Christian faith, and many of those bad examples have caused unnecessary fear. But it is important to share the value my faith adds to my art. Because of my faith in Jesus, I can take the approach of humble confidence. I know there is so much that I do not yet know. And I am confident because I do not find my value in how much I know. This allows me to be honest about what I can do for a project, while confident that I can learn and discover with my clients the best approach to take. I am confident in the skills God has graced me with, and take pride and care with each project I am blessed to work on.
