Sometimes artist fall into their niche of art by accident or by way of the heart. Some find their creativity to blossom later in life while some have the natural talent to express emotions what they find is the ideal way for them to communicate their feelings at an early age.
Using art as a way to release deep emotions, where words fail to explain, can help cope with a life tragedy and the ideal way to keep striving forward in life or capturing fun moments as a hobby turned into a career while creating some of the most inspiring double exposures the surfing community has seen. The forms of expression are endless in the mind and what we have created thus far has yet to be criticized and recreated into a another form in the future.
