Welcome to my blog

Welcome to my art blog. Ill be posting some of my artwork as I am creating it and also list my finished products with a link of where they can be purchase.  If you want to learn more about me and my art, you can check out my website or my Facebook page. I also have some of my art listed on Amazon and at Etsy.

This is a huge step for me. Art. Exposing myself and my creations is extremely personal and up until now I have kept it all guarded. That being said I do hope anyone visiting this site enjoys what they see.
My home is one filled with laughter, music and cats. Hockey games are blaring, foods being cooked, and paint is being spilled. 

Art. I remember my first elementary school art class. The room itself was a glorious one. Paintings on thick papers were everywhere, strung from strings all around the room like us children decorated it. You walked in and you were met with that visual, along with the smells of paint, sweaty little kids, and paper! I always felt physically and mentally safe in my art classes. Kind of like it was the one place that I was accepted. Throughout my entire school career up until college I was always in some form of art class. My art is simply my brain on canvas. Fueled by emotion and music. 

I dedicate these images and photographs to my dear friend Jared Forsyth. Jared was killed in the line of duty April 6, 2015 during a firearms accident. I was hired with Jared in April of 2012. We immediately formed a bond and for 3 years I got to work with him, and share a Guinness and a laugh with him a lot. The Buddha quote on this page is one I have used to honor my friend, for he knew no enemy. Thank you Jared for always cheering me on when I was working two jobs and keeping me motivated. I will not let your memory fade friend. IGY6
