The first time I knew I wanted to be an artist was after a visit with my Great Aunt Evelyn Kennedy in La Porte, TX. Aunt Evelyn continues to be an inspiration, so I must thanks her first. Aunt Evelyn thanks for introducing me to art, I love you.

I would like to personally thank a few people: Jason, my biggest fan, and harshest critic; thanks for helping me be me. My Mom-I love you! My Dad-I love where we are heading in our relationship. Rob, Michael, Steve, Michael A., Denis, Paul, TJ, Putter, Amy, Kedda, Pat, Joey, Phillip (aka 01/05), Wayne, Mark P., Amanda, Phat Matt, Bob Bowers, Trixie, and David, thanks for everything, I cannot imagine my life without you all.

Teresa Faris, where do I start? You are an amazing artist and I am honored to call you my friend. Your courage in life continues to make me want to be a better person.

Keith Huie, you are the best! Simply the best. You are a talented artist and poet and I hope to one day be worthy of your friendship!

Lastly, to Robert, my brother and best friend, you are the reason I never give up and I love you.
