How long have you been painting?
I have been roughly painting for 2 years now, but have been creating all my life.
Who has been your biggest inspiration/ supporter in your art career?
My daughter has been the biggest inspiration/supporter for my artistic career. Everything that I do, or have done doesn't effect me directly, it effects her. I'm on a quest to building a legacy that I can leave behind that she can follow and continue to build.
How did being awarded 3rd place in the The Mural Project @ CityCentre affect you?
Being awarded as a winning muralist in The Mural Project @ CityCentre definitely helped me gain more momentum in my artistic career. It proved to me that anything is possible, with the right combination of prayer and hard work. Since The Mural Project @ CityCentre, I was granted the opportunity to showcase my work for charity events, and group shows.
What mediums do you like to work with the most and why?
There isn't a particular medium that I really favor over the next, but if I had to choose it would be aerosol. With it you're able to mix, blend, and cover larger areas.
What is the name of your current series on display?
The current series is titled "Depth" and represents a look into oneself. Each piece features an emotion or figure that in some way tells a story of a journey they have taken once. Along the quest through faith, hard work, and direction, amongst other themes, the journey is a complete glimpse into one's self identity.
What message (if any) do you try to convey to the viewer with your artwork?
I have several messages throughout my work. The idea that resonates strongest for me is following your dreams. Taking a simple idea and focusing on the possibility of doing something greater then where you may be in life right now.
