Some of my artwork has been shown in galleries in the Oklahoma City area and as far away as New York, Chicago, Toronto , and later this year my sketchbook heads to London and Melbourne.

In the future I will be exploring my Native American heritage as a proud member of the Chickasaw Nation. I hope to incorporate these discoveries into my art.
