ARTIST STATEMENT Even as young children, especially as young children, we often embrace superstitions and imbue harmless objects with the power to help us control our lives. I remember playing with Ouija boards as a preteen, reciting the alphabet as I twisted off a soda can tab, playing MASH and always having a rabbit’s foot…..
When I was younger, which seems an odd thing to say for a 24 year old, I always said I was going to be an artist because I simply loved to create. It’s a beautiful and honest answer, but I’ve since realized that for me there is more to it. When I am lost sleeve…..

JiM MARTiNEZ I look at my art with the same satisfaction that an author might view his or her writing, or a musician might appreciate the music. If I only had myself to share it with I would feel blessed. I love to share what I create and can’t wait to show someone as soon…..

I like to paint ideas as they develop and often use different styles to express myself. The life that goes on around me, the places I’ve been, or the times I’ve lived through are reflected in my paintings, and have always helped me refine my understanding of myself, and provided an outlet for expression.
