After spending some time reading about addiction and and the way it affects families, this was my visual interpretation of being free from it. There are areas of this piece that represent the bars that separate the addict from society. Other places in this artwork open up the way we speak about it... giving conversation and understanding to anyone involved in the healing process. Relationships are built, and broken in addiction. That is where the distraction begins. It takes the mind off the main objective - to get better day by day.

My art is not only a reflection of my past or present, but a combination of both. The days of old in rural Belcher, Louisiana, my college days, and life experiences along the way are brought to life through my art. Art has given me the opportunity to share this journey on paper and canvas. Although you will see some elements that are undeniably personal for me, so much of it has more to do with LIFE. I encourage you to travel along with me. My hope is that you make a personal connection that also becomes universal - in a very authentic way. Expressing my “heart” revolves around not being specific to any particular style. I believe that the many facets of my visuals represent the “multi-creative” soul that I am... evolving constantly. Being a visual artist, graphic designer, writer, and musician, my artistic expression moves into many arenas. Like the aforementioned creative mediums I enjoy, my art will reflect a hint of these various creative disciplines... all done from my heart. With these visual representations of color and textures, it is my hope that you see something in these works that will cause you to stop for a moment to... Remember. Dream. Hope. Reminisce... then Dream again.SHREVEPORT
