I have a thing I do when I am out on public transportation and I look at people.
Sometimes I observe how their facial structures are composed over their muscles and bone structure.
I instantly translate their face, their body, their skin into a messy or clean charcoal drawing or multicolored painting.
I tend to see people in multiple colors after being largely on influenced by artist, Stephen Bennett.
I rarely have a specific message to send through my work, but when I do it usually pertains to issues that are not exactly trending, popular or commonly talked about.
I mostly like to capture the beauty of the human face and body, and after taking figure drawing in college, I developed a love and appreciation for the human body regardless of what shape it's in.
My signature style in painting developed primarily through arranging a pattern clash of warm and cold colors thanks to Artist Stephen Bennett.
None of it was intentional - it all developed and evolved over time.
People always ask for my artist statement so I needed to do one but I've never liked to explain a certain piece of work - if you've made a picture and that's how you wanted it to be - hopefully it can speak for itself and whatever it says to the viewer - it's the right message because there isn't a wrong and a right message. Each person takes something a little different from the same picture and I'm happy with that.

My influences are first and foremost everything I see, feel and experience, but I've always loved comic books, figure drawings, anime, and  particularly work by Stephen Bennett, Daniel Leon Hodges, Cbabi Bayoc and Billy Bill. I love architecture particularly Architectural Digest. And I love to travel because I like learning what other cultures are like, their countries, their style of living, and to see the beauty of the world and it's multiple faces and languages of people.
