I am an artist with a God given talent that I need to share. Not your typical art school educated artist. I have no letters after my name. I have spent the last six years mentoring under a professional artist, painting, sculpting, building creative environments. My specialty is airbrushing, but my gift is shared whenever I put my heart and hands to task. I have found I work most effectively when serving another person or persons vision or dream. Like I said I have a gift from God to bless others with. I am local to Vancouver, Fraser Valley, Vancouver Island, and the lower mainland. Part of my dream is to paint any where and every where for anyone ....
