“The Effects of Change”
You CAN change.
You CAN be whoever you want.
You CAN do whatever you want.
There is so much you’re capable of. Don’t get stuck where you are now.

"You have everything you need"
I don’t think that we understand our own power. More often than not I’m asking myself if I’m capable of accomplishing the task set before me, or if I’m ready for the next step.
This painting is about pushing the boundaries of what we think we are capable of, and understanding that we already have all the tools we need to reach our goals. If we can just find a way to access those tools, they’re at our disposal.
As seen depicted in this piece, all tools that will free the heart are present. The knife is held by a rope which it can cut through. Once the knife is free, you can access the key which can then open the lock. When you look at this holistically, the very tool that can change everything is held by something in which it can overcome. This is how I view the tools we have within ourselves.

"Don't live and die for dead presidents"
There are so many things id like to say about this piece and how it makes me feel, but ill keep it relatively short. Often times the lack of monetary resources discourages people from pursing their passions. It can make you feel trapped (like our subject in this piece who is confined within the wooden bars) into a cycle of working Monday through Friday, and living for the weekends. This piece also depicts my feeling of living "tight" or "paycheck to paycheck". Im sure most can relate to that feeling, and the yearning to live life fiscally fit. Regardless, we can't allow ourselves to live and die by the almighty dollar. More life…..
P.s. I understand Benji Franklin wasn't a president. I'm referring to money when I use the term "dead presidents".

This piece is a constant reminder to put in work and push towards my goals. When you feel safe your comfortable, and when your comfortable, you're not growing.

There is so much I want to say about this piece, but I’ll keep it short and to the point. I think it’s crucial to understand and visualize exactly what you want to be. While I was working on this painting I realized that I am becoming what Ive always envisioned. We get so wrapped up in life that we don’t always take the time to recognize and appreciate how far we’ve come. After the reflection, comes re-evaluation, and then it’s back to work!

"Can I Dream For A Little Bit Longer"
There are so many obstacles and trials in the way of our dreams. For many, big dreams are too hard to handle. The vines and leaves in the background show growth or potential growth of an individual and their dreams. In the way of those dreams is the chaos of everyday life - our families, jobs, finances, hopes, fears, failures, school, etc. On top of that, we have negativity from family, friends, co-workers, peers, employers, etc, (reflected by the arrows). People often think it's impossible to reach their dreams, so they tend to project their fears onto others. For the people who continue to chase their dreams regardless of life's circumstance, keep going.

"The Pursuit of Happiness"
Fresh off a 900 mile move, and attempting to settle back into our "normal" roles. Kids, jobs, storage units, Texas heat in the middle of august. Needless to say, life has been hectic. This piece reflects the crazy flow of a family going through what seems to be endless change. On the other hand, its rooted with bright, fresh colors, and a hint of "growth".

Intersections happen all day, everyday in our lives. You meet someone that you eventually fall in love with, you meet someone who becomes a mentor or a business partner. You go through struggles that lead you to inspiration, and you use that inspiration to create something you normally wouldn't have. This piece is about embracing the doors that open and the ones that close. It's about creating and nurturing new and old relationships. It's about growing during the struggle and remaining humble during the peaks. Keep growing.

I, like most, was heavily influenced by Micheal Jordan growing up. I used to watch all of his old film, read his books, rock his shoes and play ball with my tongue out. MJ, just being himself, inspired so many people to strive for more in their own lives.
The inspiration behind this piece came from his influence on my life, and from his story. This piece talks about Jordan’s struggles, work ethic, accomplishments and legacy. The coolest thing about his story is the fact he was cut from his high school team. This piece prompts you to look at your whole story, not just the current situation you’re in. If he would’ve quit after he got cut, he wouldn’t have ever come face to face with the man he is today.
I feel like a lot of times in our own lives, we fail, and then we quit. Someone tells us we can’t do something, so we quit. We get a little pushback and life gets hard, so we quit. This piece showcases the end result of not quitting. When you see that shoe, you don’t just think of a shoe. You think of the legacy that Micheal created. You think about the greatest basketball player of all time. You think about all the children he inspired to work hard and chase their dreams. You think of the possibilities. You feel hopeful. You are inspired.
That is the type of legacy I look to leave.
