From a very young age, I had a love and appreciation for art. I would sit for hours watching my Grandfather as he told a story through his brush strokes, creating beautiful landscapes in oil. I went on to study art in college and began my career as a staff artist in advertising. After starting a family, I turned to freelance work and found my real calling when I was blessed with a commission to paint the Stations of the Cross for my church in California. From that point on, I knew what my life's work was supposed to be, to use God's gift to the best of my abilities.
