CV

As an accomplished fine artist, I take great pride in my work and am privileged to have had my pieces shown in a number of prestigious galleries and institutions. My art has been commissioned by highly regarded organizations, including the Samis Education Center at the OU Complex, and has been exhibited at the State Capitol. I have also had the honor of being selected to participate in the OAC Leadership Arts Program, highlighting the significance of my work in the state's art scene. Currently, I can be found working on new pieces at Studio Six, located in the vibrant Paseo Arts District.
