ARTIST STATEMENT: I am a self taught artist who attempts to harmonize color relationships, manipulate perspectives and expand on many different aspect motifs to create a new view of this world. As a teen I joined a crew that painted graffiti works on the subways. At 19 I was gifted an art book of Romare Bearden by my brother. These experiences, as well as, my experiences of playing, and understanding Jazz music are the greatest influence on my work. The use of old magazines, books and image sources allowed me to pull my media from other peoples' trash which inspires resourcefulness and an excitement of creating something from nothing. Most of my collages are made up of several hundred separate pieces of paper with carefully chosen image, color, light and texture properties. I work deliberately. My other favored medium is pencils. I prefer portraits because the subtle beauty of facial expression is endless because of our acute sensitivity to it. I will work with watercolor and acrylic and combine media. I also will work digitally using what I have learned from other mediums.
