* With each work, or as an artist as a whole, what do you wish to communicate to the audience, and how does this specifically effects the final work? Does this change with different works, or series, or does it remain the same with all of your creations? I wish to communicate whatever it is I see in my mind turned to art for my audience to ponder what lead me to create thus art, if the artwork was commissioned I always want to communicate something that relates to whomever commissioned the piece. This usually allows for very positive effects on the final work. for the most part it remains the same, but occasionally changes depending on my emotions/mood.

* The creative approach is a very personal methodology, and every artist differs when it comes to their artistic process. How do you approach creation- can you elaborate on your working process? First of all I have to be in the right state of mind, for me everything begins with a dream or day dream, sometimes a memory or thought of something somewhere or someone. I think a lot, and I think about many things in this world which plays a major roll in my creative process. Once I reach that state of mind I can then create.

*What are the principle themes and focus of your work?
My themes are very random and usually depends on my mood, but if someone is an avid fan/critic who would critique me on what I create, I guess they would say my themes are organic and most of what I create are mainly based on nature.

*Your aesthetic; while routed in fundamental art historical themes, is also very distinctive. I’m very interested in are artist with a unique vision places themselves within the art context; which other art and artists they are inspired and influenced by. Within the evolution of your artistic journey, have you found a specific affinity to certain artists, and if so, why? 
I have affinity for quite a few artists and their works, but specifically none has impressed me more so than Banksy. I have always heard about him via word of mouth, but never saw any of his work, the first time I saw images of his work was in Urban Outfitters a few good years ago, I was just browsing looking at random things in the store when I stumbled upon his book. At first I didn't know what to think or feel, but I wasn't a fan then because I guess I was still too young to get his art. After a good few years of seeing more and hearing more about what he does and is still doing speaks volumes, Banksy is not human how he comes up with these out of the head ideas and installations is beyond all of us.

* Which of your works stands out as a highlight, favorite, or significant point in your creative growth and development? And why was it most significant to you as an artist?That would be a piece I created back in 2009 called "hard target" its a painting of a vulture wearing an army helmet standing in front of a wall with numerous bullet holes and cracks in it, it is my favorite piece and it is the only piece I will never let go. This piece is most significant to me and my creative growth and development because it is from a 30 piece collection I created for my very first art exhibit I fund and produced all on my own.

* Artists always vary in the importance placed on communicating their own vision without question or limitation, and the emphasis and importance placed on the audience, and how it can and will relate to them. How do you feel when people interpret your artwork inversely, or is there one primary thing you hope to have the viewer experience?
When people interpret my artwork inversely it does not change anything in my mind of the piece, for some artist I know it makes questions arise. Sometimes when I create a piece there is one primary thing I want the viewer to experience and at times I like being present when the viewer is observing the art and have questions for me, sometimes they would ask me about the piece and gesture to me what the piece is expressing hoping they are giving me the correct meaning of the piece.


* In a wider context, why do you think art is imperative for the world, and why is it important for you personally as artist? Whenever someone ask me a question like this one I always give basically the same answer, art is imperative for the world because without art this civilized world would not exist, and it is important for me personally as an artist to keep reminding those who may not know.

* In your evolution as an artist, (both creatively, conceptually and pragmatically), what has been the biggest frustration or obstacle?
I would have to say my biggest frustration or obstacle is trying to do too many things all at once and still finding time to complete everything all while remaining sane.
