My deepest influences are found equally within the surrealists and Outsider Art pieces such as street preacher James Hampton’s The Throne of the Third Heaven of the Nations’ Millennium General Assembly. I approach painting with a conscious rawness. With reference to Outsider Art, my artistic insights meet the paint and paper with technical and emotional directness.
