"For most of my life, I have explored my interests in photography and art, inspired by my personal experiences and the world around me. Sometimes the art starts with a photograph, but I have never felt fulfilled with the camera alone creating the art. It is important to me to get my hands dirty and feel the paint and the layers of texture and collage as I create my art."
