Two years after I first started painting, my work had attracted the attention of Paul Collins, one of America’s most famous artists. Collins is best known for his Underground Railroad mural and international exhibits portraying the world around us. I soon became his apprentice, finding a commonality in our work ethic and subject matter. I’ve been learning from, and working with him, for many years now. His work inspired me to take my art to a level that I couldn’t imagine when I started. I know can say I am part of the Paul School of Art otherwise known as the humanitarian art movement. I also regularly work with my sister, Liz Goodall, an award winning costume designer for Meadowbrook Theater. She often designs the costumes that appear in my paintings and advises me on my projects. We have a similar philosophy and work ethic when it comes to art. Art can be very powerful. With my work, I try to paint the beauty in humanity. I am dedicated to creating art for the sake of the people, art that tells a story and honors the good things in humanity.
