I studied Illustrative art in college.(The University of
Akron in Ohio) I learned there that I hate being creative on demand. Now
that I freelance, I do art when I feel like it and not on somebody's
schedule. I'm married with 3 children and when I'm not working on an art
project or chasing kids I do Theatre.
