I have always had a love for the arts, portrait painting and abstract art, being trained as a traditional artist, has given me the tools to create images that tell a story and make the viewer feel some type of emotion when they view my art work. My family and friends are part of my journey and inspiration. As a child, I grew up in New York City during the 60s and 70s with a twist of a southern background in North Carolina, which greatly influenced me as an artist, so many of images reflect the faces of people during those times, and the Civil Rights movement.
As a kid, growing up in the inner city of NY, this piece represents a safe place, which was my stoop in front of my home. Where family and friends would gather, were we laughed and some times solve problems. Seating on the stoop was considered a safe place.
This piece represents protection and love that siblings have for each other.
Now I Lay Me
This piece represents the Innocent's of the child praying.
