Statement

I started being very creative at a young age, but no one pushed me in that direction and I had no idea that I would actually become an artist. Until one day out of loneliness I started painting and began the process of healing myself. I had to learn to love myself.

 

I studied business and fashion, got a license to cut hair and took some courses in photography , painting and experienced life by traveling around the world.

 

I remember the first time I saw Cy Twombly’s work, I ran home and painted until the next day. Ever since then I haven’t been able to stop. Though my work can be visually beautiful, it also speaks to my deeper relationship to humanity and my awareness of my deeper self.

 

Today I feel like....”Hey what ever works for you and for me.”  So I’ve learned how to make my life work for me. I love what I do and I am grateful for all that is. And if life really doesn't have a purpose, I know that I can always create one for myself. One of my missions that I am passionate about is getting the word our to “love yourself.”   So I have been working on “love yourself” art for 5 years and it has created a big change in the way I see myself and the world around me. With the help of other artist and friends we are beginning to go forward with the “Love Yourself Project” and created our first sticker!

 

As my love for myself grows, so does my love for all living things. I began using recycled materials and found objects in creating installations about human relationships.  I even started eating raw and organic foods.

 

Art has helped me grow spiritually and intellectually........a huge change from that lonely man who one day just picked up a paint brush and started painting to ease the pain of loneliness.
