Josh Burton, Makanda Member Since July 2009 Artist Statement I started out at a young age fulfilling my need to do art. As the more I grew, the more my art did as well. I reached a barrier around the age of eighteen when I went to a art school in Chicago, Il. But I trudged through it like I always do and I like to think that my art has as well. It's a part of me I would like to think. My art reflects parts of my life, and also my philosophies. I have put alot into my artwork and I hope that you will get alot of satisfaction out of it as well.
