Most of the work shown on this page was executed between 1993 and 1995 as part of my art studies at Virginia Commonwealth University. I did a lot of experimentation during that time: media, pigments, forms, subjects, etc. some of it worked out, some of it didn't. I think the most difficult thing for me was life drawing.
