“I do not know what art is. People have their own mad perception about it. There is so much about art that I cannot begin to understand. At times, art to me is a difficult reading; a random journey of someone’s destination. Then again, is can be a simple black and white in your face expression. I am not going to tell you the full story about how I got started, but I can show you where I am now. I would rather express to you on canvas with paint what I want to say and how I feel. I use the little things for inspirations, the corners of a building, everyday moods, conversations, and so on. I am not a poet; I hardly consider myself an artist, I am just an individual with a sponge, a bucket of water, a syringe, a spoon, a spray bottle, with bad eye sight and the love of two things. I love painting and at the moment, I paint what I feel, what I see, and how I choose to show what is on my mind and in my heart. Art can be a confusion of colors or just an undecorated line. It can be both havoc and sensational. I believe art was not designed to be understood or describe, just felt. You just feel art when you see art. Thank you.”
