I was born and raised in New Orleans, at a young age I took interest in local art and culture, as well as contemporary art in general. Leaving behind engineering scholarships at 19 to fully pursue my art interests, I soon booked my first exhibit in New Orleans showing colored-pencil sketches based on studies of Degas' dancers.
After these Degas studies and many others of great artists, I began pursuing a new, self-taught method that formed into the sculptural-painting and collage techniques I use today. My works using these techniques have been shown in New York, New Orleans, and Oklahoma City galleries.
