This art show is about 2 things
The first is my beautiful wife who nearly lost her life in a terrible car accident on May 30, 2012. She suffered a shattered spinal column, all her ribs were broken, her left wrist was snapped and her jaw was fractured in two. Collapsed lungs, contusions on her internal organs and on and on.

I want to ask you something.
Over the years I've been asked to give personal art lessons. Instead I've been going to schools, doing workshops, and using my art as both a teaching tool and as a way to promote cooperation in communities. For me art has not just been about painting a picture, but something I feel is far more important.
Art has been my path to reach a deeper understanding of what it takes to be successful both professionally and personally.
I've had my highs and lows and learned A LOT along the way and nothing gets me more excited and to feel more in purpose with my life than to share these things.
My question is simple:
Thank you for sharing your work. You have a style all of its own. I have been trying to get down a style myself, I think I like too many things... maybe that's the style. Anyway, I hope you good journies. love your works.
