Early in life, I never envisioned myself as an accomplished artist. During Desert Storm, I served aboard the L. Y. Spear AS-36. My mode of service was precision calibration of the 7th fleet’s fast-attack nuclear-powered submarines. This opened the door to a lifetime of learning. I am honored to have been a part of such a challenging mission. By utilizing the skills passed down from three generations of metalworkers, in combination with my Naval experience, I began to express myself creatively through art. I am learning that art invites freedom of expression. It takes a lot of courage to bring my visions to reality and display my work publicly. But I’m very honored to have this opportunity to inspire others. I hope you enjoy yourself at ArtPize 2021 Grand Rapids.
