I've been a creative person all my life, growing up in Chicago on the west side in the Lawndale area and hanging around the black panthers at the age of 8-9-10 has helped me to see the real world and my escape was art, still in Chicago and moving to Cabrini green, Roseland and now the greater Englewood area, the colors I see are beautiful. self taught and hungry my very first job as an artist was at a neighborhood screen-printing shop called PT-shirts, my first corporate job was on Michigan Ave called Parrot Color/Graphic Wearhouse as an production trainee ,moving up to manager in 3-years gave me the confidence to move on in 5-years to open my own shop called Abstracts T-Shirts (sept 1990 - august 1995 ) with my own company, the creative doors are now wide open, moving into my first home and building a home base business was easy and less stressful, now my life is filled with creating concepts and still growing as an artist, my original abstract paintings are all well defined for the print and gift items market thru "print-on-demand" companies and positioning them in the online store business.
my medium is abstract art, blending colors, moving and directing the strokes of my instruments to create new and complex layers of visuals and keeping patrons wondering, in their own thoughts of what my concepts are, brings me true delight and comfort. life, color, direction and an eye on beauty is fun for me.
