7. Tell us about a painting project which you are very proud of and why?

I’m proud of my piece “Holding the Weight Of the Worlds Tears” The amount of lives I was able to influence, the amount of hearts it was able to touch was unimaginable. The sheer imagery in my perception is one of my biggest accomplishments in my time of painting. From the globe, in the eye (look closely) to the power of the message, is what makes me so proud.
