|"Painting is self-discovery. Every good artist paints what he is." -Jackson Pollock
I have been doing art since I can remember...literally. I do not focus on a certain style, medium, or genre. However, I have taken comfort to working with ink and acrylic, as my main mediums. Many of my latest works tend to focus on lines, geometrical shapes (such as squares and circles), the contrast of light and dark shades, and surrealism.
Growing up, many of my earlier works were given away to close friends and family. After a successful college career in basketball at Cameron University, I was accepted into UNT's graphic design program. I was encouraged to pursue art as a career. But it wasn't until recently, in 2010, that I decided to follow my heart and dreams, and pursue.
"Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad." -Salvador Dali
With my recent success in commissioned pieces and sold art works, I have quickly picked-up doing more commissioned art and getting my name out in the community. My next goal is to enter multiple juried artshows and contests, to help spread my name furthur out in the region.
"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." -Picasso
