Art can express how you feel and what you feel, it can also show you how to feel. Thoughts feelings and emotions can be expressed through Art. I have chosen Guitars for the passion I once had. As a Guitar player for more than 30 years. Now a crippling disease has taken over hands and feet. As I can no longer play so now I put the passion of music in the paintings.
Beginning in 1983 in the 3rd grade I entered a Art contest with the Louisiana State Fair. I drew a 11×17 Pelican in pencil and won. My Art was in display in the Louisiana State Museum in Shreveport Louisiana for more than 2 years. At that moment I new art was in my blood.
Durning this time at a young age I would draw and paint cartoon characters. Also create my own.
The Private School I Attended asked me to draw all the Art work for the school.
I never had any formal Art class of any kind.
I would build things from what was around the House and use what paint we had to bring “life” to the object.
I love to build, create, paint and draw
In 1989 I began playing guitar oh the passion began, I also began building and painting my own guitar for my playing style. I could not read any music but play by ear only. I was stubborn and wanted quickly to learn and and all music. I felt the music as it warmed my soul. As I played I could close my eyes and the world around would disappear. Art does the same now.
In 2011 my wife and I became published authors of the “Ted and Raymond series” children books I am the illustrator. African Safari with Ted And Raymond was Endorsed by Kristen Davis with “Sex and the City” in 2013.
