About Info

Artist Name
Larry "Taz" Sanchez
Artist Statement

Working out of my home studio has afforded me the great opportunity to Homeschool my son for three years while pursuing my passion for creating art. By studying other art and artists as well as building a sharing of knowledge,ideas and techniques i feel we grow as a community of artisans. keeping our creative fire alive and building a community of artists who thrive by working together to bring light and life as well as enlightenment to the world.This is what i live for. Bringing this same concept to the children i teach art to is key in their development. To never be afraid to try. Through failure we learn from our mistakes and it makes us humble as well as strengthens our drive to never give up and when all else fails we have a community of those we can turn to for advice and encouragement. I strive to be a advocate for my fellow artist, established or not, to be a beacon of light to help them find their way to their dream. I feel the more artists we have the brighter the world gets.
