Realizing the capabilities of expression
"...everything has a story, a place and a purpose."
As far back as I can remember I have always been an artist. It is all I have really known to do in life and it’s never let me down. I am always exploring ideas and realizing that the capabilities in expression, in my opinion, are endless. I think that’s what really drives me, not only in the art realm, but in life as well; nothing is ever old and constant, anything can be changed as you wish it to be. I believe everything has a story, a place and a purpose. I like taking something normal, odd, old or new and making it my own with my own little twist. It’s the small idiosyncrasies in my work that make it unique. I try to incorporate in my work the styles that most interest me such as abstraction, animation, surrealism, fantasy and whimsical illustration. Much of the work from Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Heinrich Kley, Mary Blair, Tim Burton, Wassily Kandinsky, Joan Miro, David Hockney, and many other abstract and surrealist painters have been a huge influence on me and the style and genre I am trying to create.
It’s strange because recently I found myself doing murals as favors for friends. Next thing I realized is that this could become a way of living with a possible good to come out of it here and there. That was when I thought, not only could I do what I love, but do it to help provide for children in need.
