I have always loved art; I started painting when I was a young child. My grandmother was an artist and she would teach me how to paint every time I would see her. When I was a teenager she passed away and from that day forward I have been pushing my self to create artwork better then the pervious work. Once I found photography I felt this empty hole inside me fill up, just as it did with painting. This was different instead of waiting until a painting was finished to get that feeling, I got it immediately after I depressed the shutter button. At that point I realized what I was put on this earth for. This is what I feel to be my best work.
