The artist continues,

Ever since a child raised in Georgia, U.S.A., I have always had a fervent passion to express myself through the visual arts by taking any common subject that captures my interest and transforming it into a different personalized subject matter.

Throughout my adolescent years I spent much of my leisure time copying, altering, and creating pieces of art which progressively trained me to perceive and portray the world and its surroundings in a distinct fashion of my own.

Come to think of it, it's safe to assume that it was during my high school years when I gradually mastered the art of drawing and coloring as I had acquired the ability to make portraits, landscapes, figures, and still life with the use of charcoals, pastels, and color pencils.

However, it was not until two years after I graduated when I finally decided to become a fine artist. Therefore, I determined myself to learn about the fine arts by studying the most prominent paintings of history and the great artists of the past such as Dürer, Titian, Michelangelo, Picasso, Matisse, and my most influential, Salvador Dali, to name a few, and for the very first time I selected oils to be the primary medium for my artwork.

Ever since, as a self-taught artist, I have shown and sold my paintings in most states throughout the U.S. and many countries worldwide. I'm also a recipient of awards for which I've been recognized for excellence and distinction of my artworks.

My motto is simple: "If it looks good, then do it."

When it comes to aesthetics I always follow my own instinct to explore and experiment until my work is accomplished.

Regarding the style of my work, I just paint .However it's necessary in order to make the best visual presentation according to the different subjects of my paintings. Therefore, it is the subject of my artwork which determines my style of art. I don't like to submit myself to any particular style of art.
