He said, "My work is an abstraction of specific events and subject matter gained from my own life. Typically I work with complimentary colors and vibrations of kindred tones and titles that intermingle with the subject. My work is a way to express and convey thoughts and feelings, be it good or bad, of encounters that effect my life molding me into the person I am or am yet to become."
