Hidden Realms and Forgotten Wonders

A tantalizing peek into a realm where the commonplace embraces the exceptional.



Why art?

I’ve always loved art. When I was younger I could not afford it, so I decided to make my own. I fell in love with creating.


What kind of artwork do you do?

Pop Surreal Botanical Portraits


What does your work aim to say?

That there is beauty in the strange and different. That no matter how dark things are there can be a way out.


What motivates and inspires you?

Nature, music, and books inspire me.


What process do you go through mentally when you are creating a piece?

I spend a lot of time just thinking about images and meanings and thinking

about how to convey what I want to say. I see different images in my mind and I will move them around trying to find a combination that works for what I want to say.


What role does the artist have in society?

To make them think and feel.


How has your practice changed over time?

I had a difficult childhood so my early pieces were very dark as I tried to work things out. As I’ve grown and created the life I want, my art has become more peaceful and hopeful.



What is the biggest challenge of being an artist?

Getting my work to be seen by the public.


What themes do you pursue?

I like a bit of magic and surrealism mixed with botanicals and

nature.


What is your dream project?

To create a lot of large pieces.


What superpower would you have and why?

Teleportation so I could travel the world and see the people I care about anytime I wanted.


What is the biggest mistake you have made within your career

to this point?

I think I introduced my art too soon before I was ready. Because of this sometimes

I feel the art world does not take me seriously because they remember my older work which needed some polish.


How have other artists or art genres influenced your sense of Aesthetics?

I love surrealism. Because of this when I am creating I try to remember, it does not

have to make sense. Some of my favorite surreal work of other artists does not make sense.


How do you know when a work is finished?

It is just a feeling. Sometimes you just feel like you have accomplished all you can on a piece at that time. And then you are done.
