🖋 Artist's bio
🖋 Artist's bio
The expression of a face; a twinkle in the eyes; and the wrinkles of time…all play a part in telling the story of who we are and where we’ve come from. As a portrait artist, I strive to make the special connection and share with the rest of the world a story that cannot be put into words. My story…is a story of redemption, determination, and personal growth. I began training rescue dogs while incarcerated and it has forever changed who I am and the trajectory of my life. The ability to help dogs find a new home and lead a successful second chance at life resonates with me personally and gives my life a renewed sense of purpose. Life is now about how I can give of myself to help those around me. Although not blessed with any specific artist abilities, my journey as an artist began with the intense desire for self-improvement and change. I may not be the most talented artist you will ever see, but by supporting my artwork you are also supporting the positive changes in me and my passion for giving back to the world. Some stories are written on the surface, while others remain hidden for below awaiting for the right person to share their story with the world. .
