Some of my major influences include Lourdes P Goco, Robert Henri, Lotte Lehmann, Betty Edwards, The Pope, Elvis Presley, Rod Sterling, and many others. I am inspired foremost by experiences; also by music, good films, and the dark arts. I maintain a musical background and have strong desires in performance art. I am challenged to aquire the craft of performance art by self-instruction using tools like the internet or reading instructional books rather than established systems like notable schools or private tutoring.
Writing and creating is part of my daily life. I was awarded to publish some of my poems in several poetry anthologies and became self published in 2006 releasing a title called "Six Places" which is a poetry art book - each poem accompanied with my art and is my first formal publication. Later in 2008 Six Places was re-released worldwide including the fine art photography of Michel Demanche. This same year I produced a musical/audio-book version of Six Places and both the book and the CD are available on Amazom.com
