About Artist

Basic Information

  • Artist Statement

    Why

    I realize I need a creative outlet, or I will wither away and become empty shell. My art is a way I express to the world what I can’t put into words. To see the beauty in details that are commonly missed and to feel the elation and disparities in life. There is a deep, almost innate desire, and need to create. Just as I need to breathe, I need to create. Music and emotions have a strong influence on my art.


    Who do you get your inspiration from?

    I get inspiration from everyone and everywhere. There is something beautiful about every piece of art I look at. Wheather it is thier use of light, angles, content or colors they use, there is something that inspires me to create.
