I grew up in a very small unincorporated community, or town, if you can call it that, Putney GA. > Almost everyone knew each other in this place, > and that's the way I liked it, well sort-of anyway. The people I've been closes to over the years and throughout my life, did very little to influence me in my art work, and are not responsible for my interest in art or Photography. However I will admit there was two exceptional moments in my life; one was when my sister and myself both received a joint gift on Christmas day, I was about the age of 7 or 8 years old; This explosion of inspiration came from a candle making kit, > well, it was a little explosion, I guess you'd say. Ok, now I gotta tell you, I sure didn't do any kind of Medieval Masterpiece; > a Sculpture of a painting from the Renaissance time or anything, but, that gift ignited deep in me, the hunger, and raw drive to do something in my life that would be somehow accepted by my family and later-on by others to be call artistic. The second time was when I got another; yes you guessed it, another Christmas Gift, this time it was a 110 camera which I used until it was just about to fall apart. :) After that my next encounter with being inspired came from a time when I went to live with my father, in Winchester, Va. I got a job working on a military base project through a connection, and almost every day that I could fine spare time I would ride around the mountains or somewhere in the Shenandoah Valley taking pictures of almost anything that my Dads 35mm shutter would expose an image too. :) This was the first time I knew I was going to find something that would help me have a stage, or platform in which I could display my little fragments of eye-catching views. Later (about 2 years), I was working at the local newspaper in the nearby town of Albany GA, but finding my job about to run out; via still doing construction work, I was asked to work in the printing area. It was then... I found myself in artistic haven, mesmerized, and constantly finding myself starved for more of it... I worked there most of my life, always having a chance day-in, and day-out to display my work to that little town in my area in the world. so I began live, sleep, eat, and dream... of printing in full color, that was until I wanted to expand my knowledge and experience. So.. I felt I had to learn the other parts of the production processes that was still unknown to me, so... I went to work for a Commercial print shop call American Printing, finding many new ways to practice my printing skills, but that began to bore me. After about a few months, I took an offer and went back to the newspaper I had had been working at before (The Albany Herald) and stayed there until 1998 when I made another effort to expand my artistically hungry mind. My new classroom, or pressroom as it were, would be The Tallahassee Democrat; the newspaper for Tallahassee Fla. I learned many new skills there as well, but the hours I worked, and not having much to do with the artistic part of the process, that too... soon put me back once again where I had began from, (The Albany Herald). So... a few years later, not long after going back to the Herald, I began sketching, painting, and doing photography, was once again my main medium for me to explore my creativity. I had finally decided that this, was for me. Sketching, painting, and photography gave me the platform I needed. I've been doing it ever since.
Well... that's the highlights, if you'd like to know more about me, or to understand better what makes Me, me... then, send me an email, and offer a book deal, I'm sure "We" can find a bridge to build together, that I'm certain could be properest for both parties... :)
Until then... have great day, and live life to the fullest and I hope God will bless you in every way... :)
