I was born in a chemical plant in south Texas, and grew up in a small town surrounded by areas of nature the woods, fields, and beach. I was born with epilepsy, which presented itself as the ability to focus on a single thing for hours. To pull it apart and abstract it.
"Born in a Chemical plant"
I’ve always held artists in great respect. My early exposure to art was through fantasy book covers that belonged to parents and siblings. This forged a link between story and image. Later as I began reading comic books the idea of the narrative use of image became more important.
"A link between story and image"
In fine arts I am attracted to the Surrealist movement. Though I don’t hold with Freudian psychoanalysis I do appreciate the attempt to understand our psychological landscape through story and image. Having a great nearby resource like the Menil Collection in Houston is great inspiration.
