Artist Statement

Im a self taught folk artist . I was born in Mobile Alabama. At a early age my artwork was inspired by old architecture and 19th century culture. This is shown in my artwork today. I latter moved to New Orleans a city known for it's neat culture & old architecture. Living in the Old French Quarter, I created Old world style scenes.My artwork is inspired by my international travels. The French Quarter inspires me and influenced my artwork. I now live in Baltimore MD because of Hurricane Katrina. Baltimore inspires me even more with it's beautiful art and architecture. I call my self a realist Folk Artist. A folk artist because I'm self taught. Realist because my artwork is realistic in the 19th century American tradition of folk artist. My artwork is inspired by my travels to Europe, Historic towns in America and Mexico. In my paintings I try to show Historic architecture, culture and the people of the time in period costume. In the 19th century style of American Folk artist.
