- About -

I’m a transplant to the South Florida area and have done art all my life. No formal training (I make my bills by working in the aviation industry) after many years of not doing any art, I lost my father and suffered a dark depression. That is when I delved into the arts again. The last couple years I have really enjoyed experimenting my drawing and paintings into mixed media and have fallen in love. Art is a way for me to express and channel my emotions without speaking. It’s been very therapeutic for me. I’ve had a few pieces displayed here in the area including the International Airport chosen through the city arts dept. Art has brought me through some dark times and has been an amazing way for me to heal. I’ve just gotten comfortable with sharing my art, as years before it was very personal to me. I thought people could see into my world and that made me feel uncomfortable. But the beauty in art and sharing art, is that the beauty is in the eye of the beholder and art moves people in very different way. It’s all about “perspective” hence the name of this piece with the eye. We all see a different perspective on things in life and if we can respect and appreciate others perspectives, I believe the world would be a happier place. Art needs no explanation- it lives inside all of us.
