About me

Greetings, I retired from the Marine Corps after 25 years of honorable service. My life in the Marine Corps was amazing, there were many wonderful and challenging experiences. My art is a result of my transition from warrior to artist. I am self-taught in the mediums of collage, acrylic, and watercolor. However, I am constantly exploring new mediums and techniques.
