"I’m fascinated by color and texture and I continue to experiment and push past limits, including my own. I invite others to join me, especially in my live art sessions, to see how we can explore the edges.
"I extend my gratitude to:
Casey Cheuvront, who taught me that art is as serious as you take it
Laurie Fagen, who taught me that you CAN do it all
And the rest of my fantastic group over at Curious Kirby Creatives
"Stylistically I have been influenced by street artists (Smoe Nova, Doke), digital artists (James Julier, Simon Dee), as well as others such as surfboard artist Drew Brophy, and superstar Ashley Longshore."
