January Artist Spotlight
My contribution in an attempt to inject emotion in to the world through my art. Art is an expression of emotions, interests, curiosities, fascinations, beauty and it’s affects. Art is my absolute therapy. I’m drawn to many things known and unknown. I crystalize moments in life entangled with others like a tree's roots enabling them to last forever with detail beyond memory. Things reverberate within me and surface through my art. Distinctive emotions arise at times without detail. Those I express abstractly allowing my energy to flow parallel to my creative soul. Creating art releases my spirit from the reality I’ve at times found myself physically or mentally captured within.
A displaced memory. I had long forgotten my desire to draw and color as child. It was blanketed by my understanding of financial struggle only brought on by the extreme amount of questions only a child asks, “WHY?”. My entrepreneurial spirit was born, lying the artist to rest in a deep slumber. It was the abundant love I received that protected me from that reality for so long. Many mistakes later I was incarcerated, imposed with a very lengthy sentence. During this time I re-discovered who I was and the passion for artistic creativity and detail. Concealing my creative expressions from the world did not last long. My secret was unmasked and others encouraged me to share it, which has led me here today.
I want people to know my art is my creative articulation of what reaches my soul, attracts me, and peaks my curiosity as a human being. I am a person of many dimensions, who’s had many challenges, failures and personal success. My heart and soul knows no depth too deep and my mind and body knows no limit to optimistic ambitions. My contribution in an attempt to inject emotion through visual art in to the world.
