As a young child I was taught that the greatest gift a person could possess is the imagination. Sharing mine with others is a way of returning that gift to the world. Everyday I strive to push myself to the limits of my creativity so that I can create a world that is much like our own, but also different in many ways. Inventing that world and moment in time is only where the story of each piece of art begins. I leave it to my audience to let their mind and experiences create their own narrative for the piece. Their imagination is ultimately what drives the piece as mine creates the world for theirs to wander. I can truly say that it is so gratifying to watch my work enable their artistic powers and originality. 

My work has seen many changes throughout the years. Some have compared my work to urban art, while others have compared it to surreal art. There really is no definition in the type of art I do. It is neither realist nor abstract. It is not really urban art or surrealistic. It is about creating a state of mind where people can utilize their uniqueness to alter that world.
