Growing up in the parishes down south around New Orleans, Louisiana I was always interested in the world of art. Mardi Gras, jazz & cajun culture surrounded me as I grew up and influenced my artwork.
After I graduated De La Salle High School in New Orleans and enrolled at Southwestern Louisiana (USL now the University of Louisiana at Lafayette,) my art & design work really took off. There, teachers like Elmore Morgan & Dutch Kepler pushed me to develop & grow both my artistic & design skills. During that time I spent many a sleepless night working on both my art & design projects.
During my time here in Dallas, I also enjoyed painting guitars & murals for the Richardson Wildflower Music Festival, in addition to showing my artwork at local arts festivals, Cottonwood and Deep Ellum Arts Festival.
