I can't not even begin to explain how much i enjoy this artist. There is such vibrance in his pieces. His work reminds me of several children's books I used to read as a child. The used of mixed media is fantastic. I love the textures that are built up in his pieces. I even become lost in the richness of his colors. I absolutely love this Artist!
