Get to know the artist!

I started my artist journey in 2011 after serving in the U.S. Air Force for eight years. I found myself in a new city, far away from my European roots. The land of West Texas is where I began as an artist, and it fuels my inspiration; it informs my past and current works.

Every brushstroke becomes a crucial note in the symphony of creation.
