I paint because I have to, it’s in my blood. I was born with this gift that has slowly turned into an obsession. There are thousands of thoughts in my head daily that I have to get out, regardless if it’s on canvas or any other medium. Art is literally the one thing that keeps me sane. Of course along with that comes the obsession for greatness. I don’t care about fame, I just want to live up to my full potential and make my grandmother proud. I want to show children that you don’t have to settle with being a pro ball player, a rapper or selling drugs. I do it for the quiet kid in the back of the class, who keeps to himself, drawing Bart Simpson.
