Statement

My art is to show the world in a new light as well as challenge people’s usual way of thinking. In many of my pieces I try to show nature for its true beauty that is easily overlooked.
I use a variety of materials, most being objects you’d never expect to see in an art piece. I often do three-dimensional mixed media art or photography, but on occasion I paint two-dimensional. I like to make something out of nothing, so most of my art is made out of recycled materials.

I grew up on the coast in California and that has greatly affected my art, because it inspires my photography and I believe it created my love of nature that I reflect in my art pieces. Life experiences and the world around me inspire my art as well as my friends as they have had a big influence on my art.
I do my art as an escape as well as a way of expression. I like to sit and work for hours at a time. By the time I have finished my piece I usually have my next piece planned out, researched, and I’m ready to work on it. I'd like to sell my art, but by the time I finish a piece it's become a part of me and it makes it hard to part with them, but in most cases I'd rather give my work to someone instead of have them pay for it. I actually have a sculpture on display at the Ronald McDonald House Charity in Bakersfield that they wanted to buy from me, and I was so honored I donated it to them so the children that come in and out of it will enjoy my piece. For now my studio is where ever i can find room in my house, but hopefully that will change, since I love my art and I hope to do it the rest of my life.
