Always' a visionary and realist, everything I do is for the sole purpose of pleasing, provoking thought, asking the question, and then an indelible possession of the public trust as one of the best artist and painters' of this time.
Fully dedicated to my Art and the vision, history, and the cultivation of creating, perusing all there is to explore, invent, and reinvent the essence of the art form, painting is such a fulfillment for me and I will always be dedicated to it. No matter how many try to label you or categorize your body of work to their benefit, the ultimate goal is to create�and �JUST DO IT�... Maintaining the utmost professionalism, forever taking my art to greater heights, trying to for fill a childhood dream of becoming a professional artist. An artist I have become sharing my vision and creations with the world, what a wonderful feeling it is to be welcomed and excepted by so many around the world, as it has been for me in the last few years. I will continue to bring to my fans, family, and friends the best that I have to offer. With that said, my story as a child artist to now let me share with you.
I have been an artist as long as I can remember. From the time I was a little boy I have been sketching and drawing my favorite cartoons and super hero's. I remember my first painting when I was in kindergarten in Mrs. lees class at Ann Street Elementary School. On my first day of school I painted a finger painting in orange and brown paint, and Barbara McClain, one of my classmates, was actually jealous of my painting. We threw some paint at one another and then she dumped all of her paint all over the brown suit that my mom had bought me for my first day of school. The painting and the brown suit are gone but the memory of that moment has always been with me. "Impressions of ones' memories, Impressions of life, and ones' life on canvas".
I really became interested in art while attending high school at Manual Arts H.S. and college at Los Angeles City College. Mr. Tetie, my high school art history teacher, truly brought it home while I was in his class. The likes of Jackson Pollock(whom also is a fellow Toiler, from Manual Arts h.s.), Jean Michel Basquiat, Claude Monet, Edouard Manet, Pablo Picasso, and others truly inspired me then and today. Looking at their paintings and their style enlightens me. For awhile I painted most of my paintings while in high school, in the style of Monet. Monet's style and background intrigued me the most. And Picasso is the most interesting and profound artist of our times. Picasso's style is hinted in most of my paintings. While in college I painted portraits of two African American hero's, Dr. Charles Drew, and Frederick Douglas. Both paintings turned out so well that my art instructor entered them in a contest, and both won ribbons. She asked me if she could buy them from me, so I gave both paintings to her for free.
Inspirationalism art is what I do today. Out of the 300 paintings I have painted in the last 20 years 99% of them were inspired by my belief in God, life experiences, and my travels throughout this great country of ours, America.
Look for more of my style and paintings throughout the years to come, for art is truly my destiny and my future I'll be painting from now until the next millennium.
