There are 52,280 characters in my head. I call it my stadium. The characters were created throughout my life. They have helped me and some of them have almost destroyed me. Their whole purpose is to protect the inner child in me. My paintings are meant to help translate the inner child in all of us. When one is robbed of his or her childhood, creating characters is one way to protect that child. My paintings help translate my drug addiction which is now under arrest due to the never ending outlet of my desire to paint. Painting to me exorcises the demons and evils that may have at times haunted and possessed me. My painting gives life to some very extraordinary characters that need to be released into the world for all to see and enjoy.
