Work on this book started in 2000, however, back then I didn't know it. I saved all the work I had done until I had enough pieces and experience to compile it into what became this boo, which I had thought about creating over the years. Each time I returned to this book I had a new perspective, allowing it to evolve a bit more with my artistic style. From poetry to digital media to photography to band photography, this is what I considered to be the best pieces that deserved to be shown.
Growing up I always had an interest in art. Over the years, as a child and throughout high school, drawing and painting eventually progressed to graphic design and photography. All the while trying to put the lessons, insight, and ideas that my teachers and fellow artists bestowed upon me. Looking back, I can see how much I have learned. From the first time I used Photoshop up until now, where it has become an irreplaceable tool just like hammer or screwdriver in a carpenter's arsenal, it starting from nothing and formed a marvelous piece of art. Learning to focus my emotions on each and every piece I worked on has helped me to evolve in to the artist I am today.
I enjoy being able to see the expressions and interpretations of my work as people see them for the first time. Listening to people's interpretations of what they see in the work I have done, sometimes expressing the same feelings sometimes not, allows me to indulge in the hope that people experience the same thrill I achieve when expressing my creative side.
With this I leave you; turn the pages. Explore and feel each piece as I have. Enjoy, I know I have!
