My art is born from a desire to express an "off the beaten path" perspective. I’ve always looked at things from a different angle compared to most people. I think the less popular point of view deserves to get some exposure and consideration, without being put down or crushed simply because it may not be in step with the accepted or current norm. Just because a point of view is ‘out there’ does not mean that it’s wrong or intolerable – it’s just different. On some level I like to be contrary and stir things up. Don't go along just to get along. Besides, it brings in new ideas and views to the conversation. Gotta grow, otherwise you stagnate.
