I have always identified myself as an artist. Since childhood, I have been dedicated to the study, exploration, and creation of Art and I have participated in more than 100 regional, national, and international group and solo exhibitions. My work has been purchased for private collections throughout the United States and for international collections in Chihuahua, Mexico and Columbia, South America. I have taught college art courses as an adjunct instructor at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas, McLennan Community College in Waco, Texas, Central Texas College in Killeen, Texas, and University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton, Texas. In 2010, I was hired by Central Texas College in Killeen, Texas as the Program Coordinator of the Visual Arts Program and Gallery Coordinator for campus visual art exhibitions where I worked for seven years. In 2017, I was hired by McLennan Community College in Waco, Texas as an Assistant Professor of Art, Drawing and Painting.
