Art and computers have been part of my life since I was young. I grew up with paint brushes in my hand, and a basement that doubled as a studio. I spent many days working in our family's basement, listening to the floorboards creak overhead. Though all of that changed the moment Photoshop came out.
My talent with art and a love of computers has helped me to win numerous international awards, both in traditional and nontraditional mediums and lead me into a career that has allowed me to share my passion with others. Over the last two decades, I have been privileged to teach students in the classroom, guiding and supporting them in their personal journey to find their own passion.
But it is when I read an article about a lost world, the Gulf Oasis, that a new direction in my life opened up. Over the last three years, I have been able to use my years of experience as an educator and artist to unravel this lost world and develop a unique and intensely personal style of art based on the science of the day and the mythology of our ancient past.
