Booneville, KY
Visual Artist


Art has been a dominant factor in my life since childhood. I discovered as a child the great communicative potential of art and actively pursued perfecting various media from pencil drawing to painting to poetry to the study of violin to say what I could not with regular language. My heroes were DaVinci, Degas, Picasso and Mozart. Through observation of their work, I could see reflections of myself, my dreams and my aspirations. In 1985, I professed to be a visual artist and taught myself how to draw and paint. My chosen media are graphite, oil and photography.
