Even though I was born in New Mexico, I was lucky enough to travel the States and see all sorts of wonderful sights. Eventually, I settled down and was able to study art from the comfortable confines of my room, while being grounded for a childhoods worth of misadventures. I did take one Art Class in 9th grade. While my teacher at North Ogden Jr High, was unable to inspire me, he did break me from my bad habit of chewing on my pencil. Eventually I would draw because I enjoyed it. Then I started painting, and I'm still trying to figure it out.
