"My artistic influences are Chagall, Picasso, and Kandinsky, to name a few. Kandinsky is a unique inspiration because of his connection of the spiritual to art. Chagall is very similar to me in that his work always floods my mind with a spiritual and ethereal sense. Picasso I see as a great teacher. I respect the variations in style he explored and created throughout his career. The bold chances and discoveries he made throughout his lifetime. His courage to change and not be confined to any one type of work is a inspiration to me. The time I stood in front of Guernicia, I knew I was forever changed." Artist Description: Accomplished Poet, Writer, Musician, Actor, Activist, Graphic Designer, Trained Metaphysician and Fine Artist. The art created is a combination of all of the above talents. Everything is related to each other, therefore, the training to some of these skills listed under Education.
