Artist in Granite Falls, North Carolina
My first job at the age eight at something I loved, baking. Most kids were playing. I was working, to me it was fun. By age 10 I had three companies I baked for. To be honest the admiration for my work was better than money.
I attended East Kentwood high school and worked part time at night. Later I received a job with Klingman Furniture as visual Artist. I dropped out of school in tenth grade to pursue a visual career. Honestly I hated school and working for someone else. I wanted to create my own way. Not being told this is how its done. I have since seen the entire US, as well as several other countries, but found my way back home to the blue-ridge mountains of North Carolina, which I truly love. Owning my own design shop, were my talents have flourished. Life is truly good to me and without the system.
Never give up on your dreams, They will happen if kept in your heart.
