How do you want your art to inspire and/or change the downtown landscape?
I just like to paint. I paint animals and people surrounded by nature and floral designs. I like to bring a touch of beauty and Mother Nature into the urban landscape.
What's your ideal, arts-forward vision for downtown Wichita and the Arkansas River?
I think broad schemes of "arts-forward visions" sound cool on paper, but aren't always practical. As an artist I try to focus on lucrative projects that give me an opportunity to showcase my skills and uplift the neighborhood/community.
How long have you been making art?
As far back as I can remember.
What's your process?
Research, Sketch, Paint, Repeat.
How long have you lived in Wichita?
I live in Hutch.
How are you connected to downtown Wichita?
I visit downtown ICT all the time. I have friends and family there and I'm always excited to make art in "The Big City".
