Hello! Thanks for stopping by my page and checking out my art, any support is truly appreciated. All art on this page is handmade by me unless stated otherwise.
Art has always been a passion of mine growing up as a kid. I picked up a drawing of a basketball player shooting a basketball that my brother drew in his class, it was incredibly good and I was in wonder of how he did it. I tried my best to imitated it. Everyone told me it was really good if not better than his (they lied). That small amount of encouragement led me to continue drawing and developing my skills. I took art classes in high school and continued to do various forms of art.
I never used it for monetary gain and always gave away most of my art. I was always passionate about glass art since my friend handed me a small piece of glass art that was fumed with the most beautiful blue and purple colors. The way it changed colors in darker backgrounds was incredible. I was amazed and hooked instantly.
It wasn't until a good friend of mine was blowing glass decided to buy a faceting machine and asked me if I was interested in using it. I jumped at the chance not knowing a single thing about faceting. We hooked the machine up in my place and I was grinding away teaching myself how to facet without any guidance in no time. Unfortunately, the machine had to be sold but I learned an amazing new skill.
With a stroke of luck, I was able to acquire a sandblaster and a grinding lathe from the same friend who loaned me the faceting machine as he was moving on to other things. Within a couple weeks I was also received the faceting machine I purchased on back order and I was ready to go again.
The pandemic finally made me realize that I was no longer happy in the environment I was working in a corporate job and decided to pursue the passion of creating my unique vision of fine art and a new chapter in my life.
