I became an artist before I even started Elementary School. One of my first pieces, I had drawn a little red wagon, and my father had been impressed with my ability to depict speed off a still object. While in 4th grade, I won the 'Reading is Fundamental' book mark art contest, which was open to the entire 4th Grade class. I had drawn an old man in a rocking chair, reading in his den. Between 5th and 7th grade, my art popularity soared with friends gathered around wanting me to draw them Smurfs, or the Argo from Star Blazers. In 7th Grade I won a blue ribbon for a poster I drew for History class, Athena, the serpent and the golden fleece.
It was in 9th Grade that I began drawing 'The Sadler Bird'. I made short comic adventures that my grandmother loved.
After I graduated high school I began to draw portraits of celebrities and that continues to this day.
