Torche

Artist Statement:

I believe I was born an artist. Feeling this to my core, I began to build on it. After a term in the U.S. Navy, I completed an undergraduate degree in Industrial Design and then set out to obtain my Masters of Fine Arts. Throughout this journey, I have been pushing myself in the art community and trying to gain the most from every avenue. I have won many Best in Show awards, sold work and received commissions for custom pieces. My work is constantly evolving as I do, but my vision has remained the same. I am drawn to raw beauty, the power of natural elements, imperfections and the process of aging. I am an artist, and if I did not follow this passion I would never find realization or solace. As for now, I am striving to achieve both. It is the voice of my artist within that drives me.
