I have been working on make a name for myself as an Artist.  I am a long way to go, but hopefully this will help my way.  Here is the link to my profile on DeviantART.  I have posting photos I took on my hiking trips, latest artwork, and some fun stuff.  Please take a look at it and tell me what you think of it.  I am currently thinking about going back to school to take up graphic design so I can continue with my business as an Artist.

To me, art is fun.  I am only discover this now at age 31. I have two very strong talent: one in math (biological engineering) and the second in art (painting, drawing, etc).  I thought that the best thing for me to go in math because it would pay more; however, it have been very hard to found a job in my major.  I have not used much of my art, so now I am thinking about giving art a try. Also lately, I feel like I want to scream from the top of my lungs at the world for all of the stupids things people do. It make me want to do something.

My Artwork

I am an artist. I created works of art.  After a few of my hiking trips, I painting some beautiful art.  I remember how I felt at that time when I took some of the pictures and painting the scene on the canvas.  I had so much fun with it, I have decide to try to introduce my artwork to the world.  I have been painting since high school.  It have been a hobby for me.  Below I have post some pictures of my artwork.  I hope  to display my artwork in galleries and cafe.  Please contact me if you have an interest in my paintings.

Forest Floor is a piece that I did after a few hiking trips. Forest Floor to me are magical because there is so much life in them. I have a deep appreciation for them because of my background in biological engineering. Scientist used microorganisms and fungus to treat hazardous material and waste in a process called bioremediation. They converted the material into something else that is not hazardous.
