About Me

Mazeologist

The purpose of my site is to share my creations with you.  consider myself a Griot. Known as an African storyteller I feel my purpose is to inform, educate, and speak out .. I'm a mazeologist or artist that creates  maze art with the purpose of visually inspiring the viewer to find a solution in their personal experience. .  

Life has presented challenges, provided inspiration and moments of desperation that sparked an array of talents and works I'm grateful to share with you. Drawings, paintings, written stories to educate or inform. I create maze "Brain Gym" games to entertain and challenge toddlers to seniors. I use my art to in many ways that I'm grateful to share with you.   


Inspiration

 The Maze

My days as a drawing artist was triggered by accident while writing a children’s book.  The quest to write a unique children’s book started by creating a story based upon mazes.  The book contained 20 mazes and in my attempt to make increasingly more difficult mazes,  a more artistic look to the work emerged.  I see the maze as a strong metaphor for life.  The maze is beautiful as a whole but is created from several pieces that form a journey.  A journey that similar to life is full of obstacles and dead ends but contains a solution.  Getting to that solution, that finished piece, inspires me as a artist, activist, writer, father and teacher to continue to take action in my life toward dreaming reality no matter how many dead ends I encounter. Using the maze theme is the quest to create a harder maze with each new piece.  The early work was limited to shapes.   

Techniques

The process I use to create my art depends on what I want to express and why. I create art to cope with life or to share with others to entertain, educate or inform.  When I have a concept I decide the best way to interpret the idea starting with the message and then method of delivery. Drawings, paintings, writings, poetry and storytelling I use the best technique or combinations to express and convey the concept in the art.

When it comes to creating a drawing or painting I start with the a question. How can I make a maze, and the subject look as artistic as possible? So within each maze I try and experiment with depth, angles, dimension, and perception. With the goal of “creating a more difficult maze every time” 

I use the best medium to tell the story of the maze. However I created over 1000 mazes and the first 700 of them are in black color only on white paper or other recycled materials. Early on I was scared to use color in my work for fear of destroying  the mazes. My medium of choice is a mix between pen paints. With no fear of color! 

 A certified dumpster diver I create on any surface ranging from recycled materials such as book shelves, dresser drawers and floor tiles to of course the traditional paper and canvas.
