I have always loved creating art since I was kid drawing on the walls with crayons.

I attended Baltimore School for the Arts where I honed my painting, drawing, design and clay skills and then backpacked around the US for a couple years with my sketchbooks. 

 I worked at a small Raku ceramic shop in Eugene Oregon mixing glazes in the "beer brewing room" and using the make shift propane yard kiln learning ancient Japanese Raku firing techniques.

  I am from Baltimore and have since lived in Oregon, Washington, New York City, Hawaii and I have my home base studio in Southern California.  My art is inspired by my adventures, the outdoors and it's creatures and also the phenomenal people I meet along the way.
