The Story Behind the Artist

My world comes to life through color and light. As a child, I loved gazing at the clouds in the sky, noting their different shapes and the shades of blue behind them. I saw God’s work everywhere around me, from the sky and trees, to the scenes of people laughing and talking in my hometown of Joplin, Missouri. Soon I found that drawing what I saw—be it with watercolor paints, crayons, or pastel chalks made me happy.
