ARTIST STATEMENT: My paintings are as real as they get, I paint what inspires me and nothing else. I choose not to go into an art career so that I don't lose my artistic freedom unfortunately it does not help my artist career since I have a full-time job in an unrelated career, but why should that prevent me for being a legit artist. Trying to launch my artist career.
