Ready to Hang

I usually get the idea for what I want to do about 2 weeks before I actually start painting. It builds up until I have to paint it. My major inspiration is science and metaphysics. I have a major urge to paint the invisible. That includes things like auras, emotions, spiritual subjects and the cosmos. I love being abstract but I want it to have something behind it even if I'm the only one that sees it. I feel like with every new piece of art I'm freeing another part of myself to the world and I love freedom.

I am abstract artist with over 18 years of experience, who creates colorful interwoven paintings. I grew up in suburbs of Richmond Virginia and completed a degree in Fine Arts at Virginia Commonwealth University. I am is influenced by Cubism and African Art. I use vibrant colors and contrast to make shapes seem to jump out at from the negative space on the canvas. Here are a few other things that have influenced me: Metaphysics, Star wars, Hip-hop music, Zen philosophy, The cosmos, Quantum science, Nature, Chess, and Lots of reading and research
