I’m a self-taught artist that loves animation. My dream is to one day write my own animated films. I started my secondary education at Jefferson Community and Technical College in 2003 going for an Associate’s Degree in Commercial Art: Advertising and Design. This was my first introduction to the use of computers in art. Most of my personal work has been in graphite, marker, and colored pencil, most of my influences coming from the world of comic book art. My desire is to reveal a unique vision in an animated film that would appeal to an adult audience, but not just for the visuals, but a film that contains ideas that stick with the viewers.
In striving for my dream I’m enrolled at the University of Louisville as a Fine Art major in 2-D Design. While taking classes at U of L I’ve continued to read and research writing screenplays and film art and design at both the public library and U of L’s. I’m possessed by trying to find out how to make my own ideas better designed and writing screenplays that are well written. My education as an artist has grown from my days at JCTC to U of L. I also want to incorporate my faith into my art, hopefully challenging the audience of my work, but also inspire other artists of faith. I’m looking forward to completing my education and pursuing my dream as an animator, at the age of 40.
