As an artists I have created the title of Art Engineer to let go of old ideas about who or what an artists is and I have become part shaman and part entrepreneur. My art is my loudest voice, my strongest muscle and my weapon for change. My paintings are subtle protests and my commodity as an artists. I create my work from a desire to ignite the viewer with the opulence of wonder and hope. As a prolific painter I continually look for opportunities to show my art work to connecting with a broad audience.
