Welcome to my World!
If you are reading this then so far my site has hopefully kept you entertained and inspired. I can't express enough how important it is to me to share my work with you all and give you a glimpse into my process. It has taken me many, many years to fine tune my crafts and develop my techniques to be able to get to this point and I feel like I still am barely tapping into my potential.
One thing I have always found interesting is people telling me they wish they had my talent. I've always been troubled by this sentiment for one major reason. When I hear that it makes me feel that they are totally discounting their own potential. I don't see myself as any more special than anyone else. We are all capable of incredible feats if we put our heart and soul into what we are trying to achieve. I always wonder if they would call me talented still if they were able to see the years I spent locked in my room practically going crazy with self-doubt, frustrated that I couldn't make my work look like what I saw in my head, or when I would go through weeks, sometimes months without a single creative thought. What you see in my work is the culmination of years of never giving up. Despite failure after failure I continued to keep practicing my craft because I decided to not give myself any other option. Even now, every day is uncertain. I am by no means living a lavish lifestyle off of my art. As I write this my phone is ringing from creditors trying to get a hold of me to pay my bills. I truly live the life of a struggling artist. Yet I am forever grateful for the fact that I wake up every morning excited to do my day's work. That is what has always kept me pushing forward. As long as I am excited to create I will never pursue anything else.
With that said I hope to share with you all some of what inspires me to create and also some insight into my process and how I go about creating some of the works you will find on my site.
