Personal Statement
I've been in prison for 17 years, most of the time in the hole. Isolation is not a good place to be, but despite my present situation and surroundings, I've tried to make the best of it. I have strong ties with my family and their love has been a great source of strength. I understand that my capacity to live a 'normal' life has been limited, but I have tried to develop myself through reading and writing while at the same time trying to educate myself in different areas.

I usually draw romantics, but I enjoy playful as well as serious subjects. Often mood dictates my creative swing, so I tend to pick up the pen as mood demands it. I find drawing is a continuous learning provess. It seems everytime I do a drawing I learn something. The pen is unforgiving, so I've learned to be patient and focused...and careful. I won't even attempt to draw anything if I'm not in the mood for it.

And it is a discipline which allows me to focus on things other than my solitary confinement. I also enjoy it tremendously!
