He began painting when he was in high school and continued painting throughout his collegiate career in Berea College as an undergraduate student and then upon transferring to the University of Kentucky began to expand into the study of printmaking. He started with studying stone lithography and then learned silkscreen printmaking as a part of his studies. Upon graduating he became a member of the Bluegrass Printmakers’ Cooperative learning linocut and etching printmaking techniques. He then showed his prints in art fairs, markets, and exhibitions regularly in the central Kentucky area and nationally. In 2015, he became the president of the Bluegrass Printmakers’ Cooperative and in 2016 he oversaw the move from the BPC from LexArts to Parks and Recreation and accepted the position of liaison between the BPC and Parks and Rec.
