I live on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, a small stubby community that shares everything. I get plenty of peace and quiet so it takes a bit of imagination to get by at times. As a child growing up here there was never much to do. I would sit at the dining room table and draw characters from my favorite cartoons and video games. This helped me acquire skill in art classes later on in school.
In high school I was introduced to acrylic paints and I found it very nerve racking as I could not control the medium like a pen or pencil. I began to respect the medium and learn the different techniques. ANYONE can pick up this medium and feel so out of place but, trust me give it time to grow on you.
Besides my love for art, i'm happily married to my best friend and have a silly daughter who I cherish more than anything.
