I have always been attracted to color. My art has been labeled outsider or naive art. Never started painting to be labeled, but my label gives me the freedom I crave to create. I love creating art with no rules, just whatever I want to bring to life.
My brother Michael introduced me to painting. He gave me some canvas and paint one day and said paint whatever comes to mind. I did and he said, don't ever stop.
My work represents who I am, how I think and why I live. It's a great feeling to create from thoughts and emotions and bring something new to the world.
