Artist Statement:

My work is inspired by my surroundings. It's beauty and it’s cruel. It's hostile and its kind. As an artist, I employ art to address issues to awakening the interest, and to inspire. My subjects are drawn mostly from personal experiences, both past and present. Artist who I've admired has influenced me as a painter. I learned by studying the masters and other accomplished artist.
