I was born in Suffolk, Virginia but now reside in Northern Virginia. I am a self-taught artist as a result of my enjoyment of creating art at a very early age. I use several mediums, however, watercolors is my specialty. I have traveled extensively and lived in several countries throughout the world (Ukraine, Haiti, Ghana, Angola, Senegal, Nigeria, Israel). My international experience allowed me to capture several of my scenes on canvas.
My inspiration comes in many forms but mainly my work is influenced by the many accomplishments of the African-American. I am fascinated by mavericks such as Malcom X, Martin Luther King Jr., Colin Powell, Langston Hughes, Ray Charles, and Oprah Winfrey. I tag my style as “Art with an Ole’ Skool Flavor”.
I have self-published two books, "Humble Beginnings, A Portrait of my Journey through Paintings and Poems" and recently, a book for pre-teens and teens entitled, "Just Beyond the Horizon". Details of both can be found under the Books tab.
God has truly blessed me and I appreciate all that he has allowed me to accomplish!
