I discovered my talent for art when I was 9 years old. I was constantly doodling on my desk in class. Art became a favourite pastime for me as I would draw pictures from magazines. Trucks (Big Rigs) were my favourite as a kid, but became interested in challenging myself to draw animals from photos found in National Geographic and Beautiful BC Magazines.At the age of 17 I was sitting in a local restaurant drawing an eagle. A man put a $50. bill on my table and said "I want that!" Theres another fifty when it is completed!This was the beginning of my carer as an artist.
