I'm a self-taught artist. I enjoy the process of specifying color, working with my hands and getting messy. Making art is a means of expression and release for me. It helps me focus, washing away all of the stressors of this culture and reality. It is also thrilling for me to see others enjoy and buy my artworks. When people talk about my art, it gives me a good feeling and awards me a sense of purpose. I also thoroughly love it when someone sees something in a piece that I haven’t seen myself.
