I’m a largely self-taught artist who started out as a musician. All through high-school and college I was a very competitive clarinetist. I grew up around artists as my mother painted every Christmas card by hand and my grandmother filled all of our houses with her paintings. After college, I began everything involved with being an adult and working a full-time job and found that I missed creating. I realized whether it was music or art, I had a definite need to “create.”

Starting in March of 2020, my daughter and I began chalking on our driveway and sidewalk. This soon became a nightly activity and we enjoy choosing different themes and subjects to explore. We mainly work at our house, but as we have time, we also chalk for neighbors and local businesses.
