Hometown: Charleston, SC

I received my art degree from Appalachian State University. Following graduation, I moved to the Outer Banks of North Carolina and worked as a commercial fisherman. Continuing my education, I attended the College of Charleston to study marine biology. Deciding to pursue art over science, I moved to San Juan, Puerto Rico and trained with the artist Jan D’Esopo.  After much traveling, including two transatlantic sailing trips, I moved back to Charleston to become a full-time artist. My work is collected internationally and I am a signature member in the American Society of Marine Artists.
