Statement

Drawing as long as I can remember, art officially became a part of my life at age 7 when I won my first illustration competition in support of my native statewide campaign called Don't Lay That Trash On Oklahoma. Soon to follow was a winning anti-drug illustration, The Thrill That Kills, which was printed on t-shirts and distributed across the region. During my teenage years, it was paintings and drawings that won state competitions, and my writing was published nationally.

I departed high school with an artists' grant from the Goddard Center and began my college career at the University of Oklahoma studying pre-medicine and drama. Before long, I left for the world renowned Tisch School of the Arts Maurice Kanbar Institute of Film & Television at New York University. Despite accolades in cinematography from FAMU, a premier film schools in Europe, a degree and work in film and television, I've returned to my favorite passions of painting and design.

Showcased at the New York Public Library with a solo exhibit, First Impression, and in countless solo and group shows throughout New York City, as well as, Prophicies Gallery, Studio 107, and Jawspace Gallery.   I live and work in Manhattan pursuing my dual careers as a painter and designer for my limited-edition, fashion tees Stretesky.
