I was born and raised in Port Huron, Michigan. At an early age I began to enjoy art and my dad saw the talent and encouraged me to pursue it. That is exactly what I did. Through the years I have taken art classes both in school and with private teachers. My range of art training includes oil painting, photo coloring, collage, clay, jewelery, and photography. It is the photography that became the basis for a lot of what I do today. Photography introduced me to Photoshop, etc. and as a result I gravitated to the digital realm.
Today, I am 'The Pixelinator'. My job in creating new designs means that I will be manipulating pixels to get what I want. This is true for my abstract work and my photo based designs. I really enjoy the options that the computer gives me. I am the only one I need to please with my art. All of the designs that I share with others I am happy with.
By trade, I am a minister. I have been a Pastor for over thirty years.
