I started painting for the first time in Knoxville, TN and began my mission to become an artist. I lived there a majority of my teenage years towards my young adulthood, moving back and forth from there until I realized there was not much room for art/ artists in the south. For a year I even attended the University of Tennessee art program. Here you can find a few of my early cityscapes when I had a tight brush and didn't paint outside the box much, while the inner passion wanted to paint something else at the time.
