About Me

"Silent is necessary to have sometime in order to reflect on our past failures in our life journey as we try to repair the damage we have done to ourselves and others.

My experience in the art world dates back some 51 years ago. I started my education in 1975 at McKinley Technical High School I became very interested in Art, because of a  friend in the neighborhood who taught me how to draw.  Since being introduced to drawing I decided Art would be what I wanted to do for the rest of my life in expressing myself. I began studying Art more when I enrolled in college the summer of 1977 after graduating from High School. I was beyond the norm and always was searching for newer ideas with a more effective meaning.  My approach to Art is very unusual than other Artist, past and present.  As I continued to explorer the field of Art, I found myself and understood my purpose as an Artist.  Later, I found myself looking for a purpose and later was able to express whatever feelings within through Art. I won a scholarship of studies for Art and Unconventional Media at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. that same year, I Received a Certificate of study from the Art Instruction School in Minneapolis, Minnesota through Mail correspondent Art courses. I later went on to do freelance Graphic Design and Photography work for friends, church Organization and some District Government agencies.  Still looking for that one thing to separate me from others I worked as a Custodian at a Hospital also doing odd jobs relating to art or communicating with peolpe that had Graphic Design and Art experience that help me to reach my goal for ten years to gain discipline so I decided to go back to college to pursuit a degree in Visual Communication at a community college in Virginia.  I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design in 2007. My plans after graduation was  to work as a Graphic Artist or Illustrator at a Graphic Design Agency but that did not go as planed. So doing the miner setback I published a book of short poems entitled Poetry is Wright that was one of my goals in life to give back something. That allowed me to research and study different mediums of art.
