Art is a dialogue dance between my thoughts, textures, colors and experiences. As a professional storyteller both using image and verbal paintings is a portal to past present and the future. Being unique lingers on the breath of my viewing and listening audiences, when you get what I create and present my job was well done.
It is important to be in a flow when I create albeit simple or the most intricate detail. Making art, telling a story or reading my poems is a journey inspiring others that has a return reward for me to grow and make a mark in history.

ARTIST STATEMENT My artwork is a visual language expressing my power and my strength. I am a scientist weighing the scales, mixing mediums, provoking open dialogue. On my journey, texture, color and bold shapes are some of the elements inspiring me to create. Alluring, meditative and spirit-filled movement are just a few ways to describe the feeling conveyed in the body of my artwork. Music, dance and poetry are my muses. I translate these as experiences into my work verbally and visually painting pictures for an audience to ingest. Arching a story blends my life with humor reflections and life's stains while healing and impacting others to see the beauty in the ugly.
