Henri Matisse started painting in his 20s while recovering from appendicitis. I love that origin story because it proves talents lay hidden and life follows a curve, not a line.
I've always been a keen observer, inspired by the seen -- color, texture, shapes -- and unseen -- moods, experiences, music. I was a creative kid and developed a vivid imagination and a thirst for novelty early on.
My work is a result of years of experimentation and practice. I've experimented with new mediums, techniques, palettes and colors. It's an ongoing journey that I hope is filled with twists and turns, surprises and spectacle.
