“I AM inspired by the beauty of bold creativity in urban culture, innovation, storytelling, emotional rawness and music. It is the exploration of expression and intense attraction for authenticity that leads me on a journey of reflective brushwork and bold visuals. Decoding life experiences while creating art that speaks to and from the soul. My higher calling is to use art as a vehicle to engage, serve, uplift and transform the community. Raising the level of consciousness. DEEP CONNECTION and DESIRE to think without limitations, provoke a feeling, an emotion, a story, a vision for unveiled new perspectives to INSPIRE GREATNESS.”
