I grew up northeast of San Antonio, Texas and developed my love for art as a result of my mother taking me to art galleries and museums. I attended Texas State University in San Marcos, and completed my BFA in studio arts at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tennessee, where I still lives and work.
Over the past several years, I have won a number of juried awards, and have had numerous newspaper articles written about by work, which is collected privately, commercially and publicly.
I am influenced by the increasingly prevalent theories and practices of materials reclamation, resource conservation, and recycling in contemporary art. And as an objective to revealing the latent potential of these discarded industrial castoffs, I have sought innovative solutions to incorporating them into my art through exploring various genre options and applications.
