I have been a professional artist for over 25 years specializing in fine art portraiture, landscapes, murals, sculptures and design. Having diverse experience in many different mediums, I like to try different artforms and create beautiful pieces to share with everyone.
As the years go by, my goal has always been to better myself as an artist and as a person. God gave me something special so I can make a difference, and every painting that comes from my heart and my hands makes that difference. So, I share with you what I hope will bring you the same joy as it has me..... enjoy this site and keep checking back, I have several beautiful pieces that I am working on and will keep you updated." Thanks!
"Painting has been a wonderful hobby and past time in my life. Without any education in the arts, I have found a love for painting that is much deeper than anyone can teach. I attended Denbigh High school in Virginia and spent eight years flying in attack helicopters for the Marines in Atlanta, Georgia. While flying during the day, I attended college for four years earning my first Bachelor's degree. I have always loved art and doing it, but it was not until the later part of 1996, that I really started painting vigorously. I have always had an artistic background, drawing pictures like any normal kid, I just had the patience to try new things and practice harder than most people. I am still learning and growing as an artist and am learning something new every day.
Because I enjoy exercising both sides of my brain, I finally get to expend my energy to the more creative side. This is where I get to relax and engage myself into my paintings. When I am not painting, I spend most of my time enjoying life with my beautiful wife and kids, writing and playing music, and knocking out "honey do" lists :
In addition to my creative side, I have a Master's of Business Administration (MBA) degree in Business/finance and a Bachelor's of Science degree in Business Management with Information Technology concentration. I also earned a B.A. degree in Criminology & Sociology while in the Marines. Also, I am a certified PMP-Project Management Professional. Working for Hunt, Guillot and Associates (www.hga-llc.com) in Louisiana & New York as a Program Controls Manager & Cost Engineer, I am involved in managing/tracking over $10 billion in State and Private Contracts. I have developed and managed Louisiana's first website database/Tracking Reporting system that was used by State and Federal agencies to monitor funded infrastructure projects. These were Federal Disaster Recovery projects from the devastating effects of Hurricanes Katrina & Rita. Leveraging those efforts and experiences with other major disasters, we provided the same services for the State of New York's Disaster Recovery Program (Storm Sandy, Irene and Lee) as well as other programs including Hurricanes Gustav & Ike Disaster Recovery, the City of New Orleans Program Analysis & Recovery, and work for large Chemical, Oil & Gas companies around the U.S. and abroad.
The trademarked processes and systems created can be used to promote full visibility and accountability with any project and/or program, thereby reducing cost, schedule, and other associated risks. I believe that having the right information in real time, from any location, is key to effective management decisions, 100% visibility and increased team communication.
