I’m a colorist. I like color. I like a lot of colors. I like to break the rules. When they say, ‘Never put that color with that color,’ when you break them, you find out they’re kind of interesting so you take it as far as you can.

With art, you really can sense an individual. You can really say a lot about yourself and explain yourself through your art. If you want to know someone and really know them, look at their art instead of what they say and what they do. Their art will tell you what’s inside of them.

Being free to put yourself up on the wall and put yourself in paintings and let people see who you are and how you tick. When you get to know the artist and their art, you learn a lot about the individual.
