Having creative freedom always allows me to have fun and not restricted by the demands of detail. But going absolutely buck wild with what I see and what I feel.
Design and color play a major part in what I do. I trust the process as I go along creatively. Sometimes I make mistakes but the result of those mistakes are beautiful and worth working with. My art at times can be personal, political, emotional, playful and times defensive. It really depends on my mood. I'm an emotional person and happy I can bring that out in many ways when it comes to art. For me art is my therapy. It has helped me in ways that I can say I'm grateful to have a gift that allows me to express. I wear my feelings and paint them, it's who I am. I'm comfortable being in my skin.
