"What Inspires Him"
Art has played a major role in his life and it has transformed and liberated his spirit, he has always felt this void deep down inside him, and no matter what, he always comes back to art, it is the one constant thing in his life that he is highly committed to! Most of his inspiration comes from all things natural; the mood of an environment and the figures in that environment. He enjoys creating sensual nudes and loves to show the inner emotions of people, places, and animals and that is why his figures have an essential spiritual sense, sometimes even abstract. He reveres the moments of inspirational reflection when his artwork takes on a life of its own. The Divine moves him as he glimpses the indescribable, a window into another existence. It is as if he receives acumen from a Divine Source and the result is an image that emanates and vibrates with emotion making a deep connection with a resonating soul, spreading enlightenment and love through his artistic works.
