All of the visual art that I do comes from my mind and my heart. It is a gift from God that I love and cherish immensely.

Change is a challenge for many artists; however, I have learned to embrace it. Incorporating bright colors into my images has always been an objective; but I have learned to also integrate abstract images into my concepts. This has allowed me to be more diverse and creative with my work. I want my audience to be as free in viewing my work as I am in creating it.

I am willing to tackle the next stage of my artistic journey.
