I don't set out to produce art about one subject or another. I revel in using different types of media and my work shows that in its eclectic look. My pieces usually come from a feeling or emotion. From that feeling comes a color idea that then evolves into compositions that tell a story. Sometimes that story is obvious; sometimes itís hidden, allowing the viewer to create their own story. To me art is a blend of my personal feelings, the subjects that inspire me and the media or materials that I choose to use.

My influences are any and everything that I see, feel and experience, but I've always loved the work of Henri Rousseau. Like Rousseau I have a love of jungle landscapes and animals, which comes out in a lot of my work. I am also inspired by music and trying to capture music visually.
