Since my beginnings in Fort Worth, Texas, I’ve moved to a few places around the country and ended up in Southern California during my years of school and college. I graduated from Azusa Pacific University in 1997, receiving a BA in Art. At APU is where I began to create the mosaics, using candy and drink labels as a medium. Little did I know this idea would have such longevity in my career. From the challenge of a project, to the conversations from people I meet, it’s a privilege to retell the story about how all this came about. I thank my professors, family, friends and most importantly, my wife and kids for their grace and support.
I currently reside in Fort Worth, Texas with my wife, Cari and two girls – Emma and Leah Grace.
