“I first started way back in 2005. I had no formal training. My artwork is inspired from my involvement with Link-Up and I am inspired by my identity. After being reconnected with my birth mother, I discovered I had a talent for fine arts.”
“I try to create works that have an interior décor aspect about them… a modern contemporary style of art rather than traditional art.”
