Author and Artist
I was born in 1958 in Richmond, Virginia in St. Luke's Hospital. I have one brother and a sister. I completed my General Education Diploma in 1988 while incarcerated. I struggled throughout my childhood not knowing that my father was my step- father.
I didn't find out he was not my real dad until my mom told me 1986. They have since passed. I began my journey in the art world while in Junior
High. I enjoyed the various art venues throughout Richmond. We moved to Oklahoma while I was young and I created a paper mache' art project in fourth grade. It was published in our local newspaper in Bixby, Oklahoma.
While incarcerated in 1986, I began to get very serious about my drawings. I learned to draw on anything I could find, including handkerchiefs.
I actively pursued Auto CAD. I also draw Folk Art and Early Dutch Design.
