"Champaign- Urbana Illinois is my birthplace. I was raised there also, but have Mississippi roots. Eleven year member of the Mississippi Craftsman Guild."
"As an artist, I create art because I feel that art is life. I feel that everything has a design and purpose. I also create art based on history that I have studied, places I've been, nature, music, and some of the materials that are used. My aim is to tap into the viewers subconscious and bring forth healing visually. I work in a variety of mediums but mostly in pyrography. With the space of the art that I work on, I try to connect with history and aim to pull questions out of the viewers mind to make them think outside of the box. As I stated earlier, music is inspiring to my development as an artist, as I create many of the worlds greatest musicians. John Lee hooker being one of them."
