I was born and raised in the Lehigh Valley. I’ve spent time in the military, worked many jobs, but I have always had a passion for art. I began as a self taught artist and have only recently begun to take classes to further my knowledge and experience.

Artist Statement

My life long passion for art started when I was about 5. Until recently I was a self taught Artist Doing drawings. But In December of 2015 While Homeless. I met A great group of Artists at The Banana Factory in Bethlehem Pa while Visiting the Monthly Open. I became fascinated with painting. So i took up painting with The encouragement of The Artist there. I find that painting allows me to channel my Emotions into something good and that through art you are able to find inner peace. Art has also giving me back who I really am and because of this I have found peace in my life again. I would like thank All of the Artists at BANANA FACTORY for there continued support and encouragement of my Art. They have helped me in more ways then any others in the learning of my craft. Also in 2016 I started taking Art Classes at The Baum School of Art, and Banana factory to get a better understanding of Art Techniques.

My art is such an Important Part of my Life, It has helped me in so many ways become a Better person and to experience things I could of only dreamed of
