What are these unusual portraits?
These Outsider Portrait Artworks depict personalities — Collectively they form a society — Together they stand for Diversity, Inclusion, and Equality.
Their voice is my own.
What do you use to make them?
I use both physical and digital art media to create digital fine art prints, as well as Original Art.
I create original portraits, on paper, and artist trading card portraits on bristol board.
How do you make them?
Often I play an "Art game" to begin. or make random marks on the canvas. Everything I do is spontaneous and blooms from these actions. I'm similar to some types of Surrealists.
It's all about diversity, so my process changes a bit with each piece. In the end I am left with a surprise — A unique person.
Have you had much success?
Well I have sold Art, but my goals have more to do with speaking about Equality with my art — including the stigma associated with mental illness and disability.
Later this year I'll be involved in a show with this sort of theme. I'm excited.
