“Born to a family of artists, painters, poets and sculptors, my happiest memories involve creative works of art.
Inspired to build a career in the arts, I studied Fine Arts at The University of Texas, ventured into advertising to build digital brands online. I ran a traditional advertising agency in my 20’s, then began digital advertising agency in my 30’s of which I still manage a marketing consulting practice.
Today, I spend most days finding ways to give back through works of art. I am proud to create works of art that do more than just hang on a wall – Each art series is created for the purpose of inspiring others and providing a channel for the education of causes and to give back for social good.”
