I am a self taught artist, originally from Southern California, but raised in the inner city of Dallas. I am a philanthropist, creative advisor and arts advocate. I’m founder of FGIIIArt and creative advisor at RISING Gallery in Dallas, Tx. FGIIIArt was founded as an umbrella organization dedicated to establishing unity within the Dallas arts as well as instilling purpose and vision into the work of the individual artist. FGIIIArt draws awareness to what is already taking place in our art community, everyday, within the various art collectives that already exist. Without seeking membership, FGIIIArt strives to be a community hub, which serves as an earpiece and mouthpiece for the individual artists in Dallas, as a whole. By providing education and guidance, pooling our collective resources, and stressing the need for community, FGIIIArt works to strengthen and empower the individual artists in OUR city.
