About

Climbing the Mountain...

     I'll try to condense the early years to keep this from turning into a book...

     I was raised on a farm in central Texas- had excellent parents and two younger brothers- practiced drawing and painting heavily throughout my school years- worked and went to college in College Station, TX- joined the Air Force in 2004- Lived in, toured, and deployed to 19 countries- spent most of my time in Italy- studied many great works of art there- got married to an incredible woman- had a beautiful daughter- honorably discharged from the military- now live in Colorado Springs, CO.

     After moving to Colorado Springs, I attended Pikes Peak Community College with the intention of trying every visual art medium I could get my hands on. After trying several different mediums, I signed up for ceramics class and quickly realized that I had found my niche. With two years of extensive training under the tutelage of Lance Timco, I was ready to set out on my own. I have been working at my craft independently since 2014, with brief moments of interruption (especially when my son was born in late 2014), but I now have a permanent home-studio, life has settled down a bit, and I'm getting back into a nice groove. I'm excited to see what the future holds, I'm very grateful for my life experiences and the people who have helped me along the way, and I hope that I can have a positive and meaningful impact with my art.

     As far as my work goes, everything is hand made at my home-studio. I pay close attention to detail as I strive to make each piece a refined work of art. My style has evolved over time- I do not have a specific name for it nor have I tried to replicate other styles. Others have described my work as being a cross between Ancient Greece, Southwestern, and Modern Art. Either way, I try to stay in my own artistic world, so that each customer can know they are buying something both beautiful and exclusive.
