I'm a 26 year old artist, I've been interested in art all my life but have been a full time artist for the past year. Everything I paint comes from within, I try to portray emotions in my work. I suffered from addiction problems for a part of my life, art is what gave me the strength to overcome those challenges in my life. I don't know where I would be without the ability to make my art, every piece I make has I part of my heart and soul, all my paintings mean the world to me and have more value than just money. I hope to spread a positive message in my journey as an artist letting people know that you can do whatever you set your mind to no matter how hopeless it may seem. There is no barrier that cannot be overcome with the power of passion and desire. Hopefully I can inspire a positive change in something negative, and hopefully my art can be a reminder to people who struggle with the same barriers that no matter how hopeless it may seem you can make something beautiful from nothing! Which is what art is, the creation of something beautiful from nothing. There is no discrimination when it comes to art, and no matter how long it takes, and how hard it is, I am determined to spread beauty and positivity thru my art. Making art is the most important part of my life, thank you again so much for showing interest in my work.
