Before I began painting full time, I dreamed of a verse in scripture, “aspire to live a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands.” I didn’t really know how that verse would come to impact my life and art as much as it has. I’m a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, imperfect but made perfect only through Him, working with my hands for His glory, not mine. I’m very thankful that I’m able to do and share something that I love, and I hope to bring others closer to Him through this gift of art.
Born and raised in Glencoe, Alabama, I earned a B.A. in graphic design, and worked several years as a graphic artist and eventually owned my own advertising agency. I began painting full time in 2009. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have three beautiful children and one beautiful daughter in law. I’m a signature member of the American Impressionist Society, and represented by Shain Gallery in Charlotte, NC and Beverly McNeil Gallery in Birmingham, AL.
