My painting technique emerged from my environment. I draw much of my visual inspiration from Jacksonville, Florida, the city where I lived during the 1990s. I loved the fields blanketed in colorful flowers near my home, so I drew my impressions of them. From that starting point, I developed a truly specialized method of illustration.
I've decorated my home with many special artworks. These pieces inspire me to continue to create art and to see beauty in the world all around me. Along with painting, I like to write. I've written an autobiography to share my story and explain what motivated me to chase my life's passion. I hope my work inspires others to follow their dreams, no matter how distant they may seem.
