I was born and raised in Royal Oak, Michigan. I attended the Art Center School in California, Center for Creative Studies in Detroit, and have a Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art from Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan. I have won numerous awards, in both national and local exhibits, including a first place in CIVA’s (Christians in the visual Arts) “Pray without Ceasing” Competition. I also self-published a book of my Christian art and poetry entitled Oh Lord, open my eyes, that I may see You in all things. I have won awards for both my secular and religious art and poetry. They include two national first place, one national third place, and numerous honorable mention and other awards. My artwork has also been displayed in nine different galleries, the Cherokee Heritage Museum, in Oklahoma and the Museum of Biblical Art in Dallas Texas.
