I am first a husband, father, brother, friend, and unfortunately, bipolar. I don't worry about the stigma of mental illness as many do because it is a fact and I try, my family tries, to deal with it one day at a time. It doesn't hurt to be in the company of many famous artists, actors, poets, writers, and politicians both living and past.
I call my work "Emotional Expressionism" because each painting reflects part of me; part of my emotions. I paint and film and write for myself. Lucky for me I won the gene pool and other people find something in my work that touches them. I no longer do "commission" work because I can't force it. I have to enjoy myself or whydoit?"
