I first fell in love with art when I was in high school. My art teachers and mother were constantly encouraging me and feeding my creative mind. By my senior year I knew art was the direction I wanted to go in. I attended art college in Atlanta Georgia where I learned all sorts of mediums from pencils, to paint, photography and sculpture. The exposure through that experience was something that stretched my creativity. It wasn’t until 5 years ago that I saw a piece of art with rope in it. I was immediately intrigued and wondered how I could create a picture entirely out of this material. It was a lot of trial and error in the beginning of the process for sure, but I felt I was on to something as I improved. I am continuing to refine my skill with each piece and I sincerely enjoy creating an art form that is uniquely mine. I get most of my inspiration from the things I see while hiking, hunting and fishing. The outdoors is my favorite place to be.
