I began as a comic artist for my high school newspaper. I was in the Chicago Daily News with a mentorship from a political cartoonist who won the Pulitzer Prize. My first paintings were exhibited in school shows. A mural of mine was put up at the Boys and Girls Club. I was featured in a one-man show at Carolina Artist Studio Gallery. At this point, I began my commissions and a number of private sales, featured in charity and personal work. I received a North Carolina Arts Council Grant to continue with my work. I moved overseas to Casablanca and worked on Fizzik Rules comic, which was featured in Malaysia, Canada and other locations.Additionally, I wrote and illustrated The Shadow Beasts series which was published through Marshall Cavendish. It reached the #1 series in Singapore. I have done art and cartooning workshops for all ages. I have worked at art walks, public art events and showings. My art has been displayed everywhere from local events, banks, libraries and more. I once worked on a 4 foot by 6 foot painting of my hometown at the time. I worked alongside Kinya Christian for a Black History Month gallery where my pieces were featured. I have done freelance commercial art as well as children’s books. As a writer and artist, I am still looking to grow and am currently working on a new 12 painting series.
