"Motivated by the blessed stress to express"
As long as I can remember, I’ve always been into art. It started with comic books, then it became a fascination with the prints at the frame store, and of course many, many, books, films, Cartoons etc. While what to depict has changed/evolved, the DESIRE to has never wavered. So I paint, draw, sketch, and click to convey and visually problem solve. With that, I invite you to take a look see at what this art thang has birthed in me. Welcome...
