Artist Statement:

Music, nature, cultures have been a part of my life since the day I was born. I have never taken a formal art class beyond high school art classes. I have been learning to create by developing it as a natural gift. From the essence of God, creation to my mind, from my mind to my hands, from my hands to the world.
