I am a self-taught artist, photojournalist, and videographer. I am involved with my community by creating art and dealing with social issues. In the Antelope Valley, people dump their trash in our desert. I create my pieces using recycled materials. On my daily activities I come across other artists with amazing talent—talent that no one knew of or noticed—talent that stretched from the highly educated to the self-trained. I use my channel on YouTube to feature these unsung artists, because I believe that art is about taking your creations and sharing them with others. My mission is to feature these talented artists, give them a medium to further broadcast their talents, and record their craft for the entire world to enjoy.
