Family has always been a staying power in my life. I was closest to my Mommom (pictured with me) and my mother. Growing up I was very shy and they were the only certain people I would speak to. When my Mommom got sick in the summer of 1992, my world began to fall apart. The doctors were too late to do anything. The cancer was everywhere. When she passed away, I wanted to do something to honor her. A few years later, while watching the local Philadelphia news, they had a segment on websites. They featured Find A Grave. I knew what I had to do. Now I list all my family and friends that I have held so dear to my heart. A way to show the world how great they were in life and how wonderful they are in heaven.
I am a graphic designer, from Bridgeton, NJ, now living in England. I have had many great people throughout my life that have inspired me to become an artist. My Mommom, who taught me to never give up my dreams, no matter what. My Uncle Jack, who was a tremendous supporter of mine. A talented artist, himself, a great man with a huge heart and an addicting laugh, and last, but certainly not least, Mr. Robert "RJ" Johnson, a local artist, the father of my best childhood friend. I wanted to do what he did. His work was all over town and you couldn't miss it.
