I grew up in Beloit Wisconsin, and then 14 years ago, I moved out to New York City where I currently live. I am 37 years old. I started drawing before I could speak, being an artist was just something I was, being one now is not much of a choice for me. I am self taught in drawing and painting and discovered a love for sculpting while attending Beloit College. Every job or career I've had since has been based in some form of art, design, painting, drawing, or sculpting, usually behind the scenes. I have sculpted professionally for the last 13 years and just started to produce my own work.
