I did my first professional job when I was 18 years old. I waited a year after graduating high school to go back to college. I took all the studio courses I could. I didn't want to take the college's art curriculum. I was able to take twice as many art classes this way. I continued to do commissioned pet portraits, wildlife, personal portraits and more over the years. I have competed in art shows and had my work published.
I also have owned, bred, raised, and trained horses and dogs for years. I owned my own boarding, grooming and show kennel. I showed 2 dogs to championships and other awards with them and other dogs. I owned other animals and birds including, Scotch Highland cattle, Sannaan goats, cockatiels, parakeets, hamsters, and even koi.
