In high school, I used to cut classes and hide out in the dark room. Occasionally, I’d take art classes at the local arts guild instead of going to school. According to the principal, I set a new record for the most cut classes. That said, I still made honor role my senior year.
I went on to graduate from Savannah College of Art & Design. Then moved by the beach in Venice, CA where, in those days, it was said that was where “art met crime”. I invested twenty unforgettable years into helping brands create fans— as a Creative Director and Product Design Strategist by day, and evolving my palette as a painter by night.
Recently, I’ve gone full circle, returned east to the lush green (and snowy white) landscapes of my early years, and set up a private art & design studio not far from the arts guild where I once escaped to.
