As a 25 year business professional, I do not have much formal training as an artist but have always had a creative view of the world. As a kid and adult, I have taken some classes to help formalize my creative side. I try to create objects and material that are fun, silly, and enjoyable for people around me. As a 5 year birdhouse artist, I always try new concepts to push my talents and vision of art in my mind.
