Art Education: Bachelor’s and master’s degrees in fine art from Pensacola Christian College.
Creative Spark: Song lyrics and children’s stories. People’s personalities and physical features. Random things in my environment and visual memories. But my ultimate inspiration is that I believe I am fulfilling a call from God. In this context, it is my observation that the world needs a strong dose of true beauty.
Second-Choice Career: Social worker, marine biologist, singer-songwriter, English teacher, or forensic medical examiner.
Other Passions: My wife, music, running, good stories, Spiderman.
One Thing People Don’t Know About You: I played the harmonica in a bluegrass band my senior year of high school.
Biggest Fear: Being locked in a dimly lit room full of clowns.
Pet Peeve: Those turn signals on cars that flash three times faster than all of the other ones.
Quirkiest Trait: My urge to dance at inopportune times. My facial expressions are also quirky. My wife tells me I stick my bottom lip out a lot.
Mantra or Motto: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
Favorite Studio Music: Worship music, electronica, acoustic indie.
Favorite Work by Another Artist: Anything by Daniel Gerhartz.
Future Goals: To own my own art studio that has programs for urban, at-risk youth.
Price Range: $100 to $4,000.
