I was born and raised in Lawton, Oklahoma. With a military base close by and a transient population, things never really seemed to happen in this seemingly small hometown. I began to pay closer attention to my surroundings at and early age. With a copious amount of self prescribed solitude, I would spend time outside, far away from anyone. I tuned into the trees, the colors, the sounds and most importantly, the light. Seeing things from at least two perspectives would lead me to continue to create magnificent bodies of work that play with the mind and the eyes. Using Light as my main subject, I am able to illuminate the subtleties of life, death, color, contrast, texture and emotion. As I continue on my journey, I can only hope my work resonates with the viewer and compels he or she to slow down a little and turn inward.
