I grew up in what is considered not ideal for children. My mother was very young when she had me and not up to the responsibility of raising a child. This led to me having to grow up a lot faster then I would have liked to.
Fortunately, I do not use my childhood experiences as a crutch, rather use it as a tool.
I have seen things growing up that seem unreal to a child. The feeling of pain in my stomach, not due to hunger, but worry was common. Wanting things to change, but unable to do anything about it.
I have always felt that I am on my own. Maybe I prefer it like that.
I am attracted to those who are beautiful, not physically, but as a person in general. Those are the people I try to paint. Those are the people I try to stay around.
Let me show you what I see through my eyes with my brush.......
