Description This painting was inspired based on how we mask our pain for no other to see. Life is not a picnic but we portray as is. You dont need to know how I truly live! You dont need to know that Im screaming with frustration! You dont need to know the sorrow that lingers over me! You dont need to know that my own shadow is hiding from me! But you now need to know that Im sick and tired of portraying who you want me to be! I will now uncover my mask to show you that youre the reason why Im screaming with frustration! Youre the reason why my sorrow lingers because youre around. Youre the reason my shadow is hiding from me because I portray myself as who you want me to be! Were all human and far from perfection and we need to stop masking who we are to satisfy others. MY MASK IS OFF! SEE ME BREATHE!

My painting journey began about 9 years ago. I’m self-taught and the learning never ends. The day I master my work is the day I no longer can paint.
My pieces are a little out of the ordinary and I consider it to be my own "Dear Diary". Each piece contains its own unique vibe/style and invokes different feelings and attitudes. I’m not shackled to one genre or medium because my personality won’t allow it.
Painting is my drug of choice, my therapy, escape and acceptance of my own thoughts.
