Abstract art is challenging to describe. I could tell you that my paintings are based on something pretentious, or that I create them with deliberate intent to make some ambiguous political statement, but that would be a bunch of nonsense.
The truth is, I had a near-death experience when I was very young and that opened my mind up to something.
I don't know how to describe it, and I'm struggling to articulate it here, but it made it so these vivid colors and shapes jump into my mind when I'm dozing off. I can feel that they're from "somewhere else," but I'm not going to pretend to know what that's all about. I just paint what it shows me.
Story: My first sale as an artist
Story: My near-death experience
I've published 30 novels under various pen names and 7 became Amazon best-sellers. This success allowed me to leave the soul-crushing grip of Corporate America and pursue my creative career full-time.
Now I publish stories with my real name and use my artistic skills to draw characters and scenes. You can find out more about my books and upcoming release dates here.
I also write authentically about life experiences on my blog. It's like a diary/sketchbook. If you're new to my work, it'll give you a pretty good sample of my writing style.
