"I’m most proud of creating. To invoke an emotion from what I have created. To see the looks on the faces of those that enjoy my pieces and those that don’t.
I think my uniqueness and throw caution to the wind style sets me apart from others. I didn’t go to school for this. I see things in my mind, and I express that on a canvas or paper. I keep pushing to create something that will get them talking.
I have a few controversial pieces that offends some. If you’re not evoking all emotions, are you truly creating art?"
