This piece was created for a charity auction at Whole Foods Market in San Antonio, TX. All proceeds from bidding go directly to the Whole Planet Foundation, which provides small, micro-financing loans to women in third-world or poverty stricken countries to support their efforts to pull themselves from poverty through the creation/expansion of self-owned business. The woman pictured is Yverose from Haiti, who currently owns her own grocery business. She employees people in her village and teaches them the trade as well in hopes they will have new and valuable skills to improve their own lives.
Graduated from the Savannah College of Art & Design (2002) with a BFA in Painting and a minor in Drawing.

There is no great statement, or underlying theme- but perhaps, that is the statement itself; you can decide that on your own. I much prefer to see how people react to it, rather than try to force something on them. There is no reality, only perspective, so even if you hate it, you still reacted to it, and I find that fascinating. I use a variety of mediums depending on what I feel...
