I was born and raised in Lubbock, Texas where the world looked about as flat and brown as a sunday morning pancake. I learned about art first from my parents who loved collecting eclectic works from a myriad of artist. My sister Shanny Lott an accomplished fine art painter also taught me many wonderful things about making a life of meaning by using all of my creative faculties. I realized last year after having great success in the art world that simply adorning walls was not going to fill my greater vision of discovering, illuminating and embracing divine truth in my own heart and in those I may encounter. Thus the Arts in Action was born .
