"I was looking for an inspiration behind the art, and found myself volunteering along side with the East Side Charlotte Community. There I saw a symbolic mural on the side of a bakery shop called Manolo's on Central. After speaking with the owner himself, Manolo, he told me the meaning of the kids holding the kites. From that it gave me an idea of doing something for the youth. I enjoy creating futuristic fantasy world art that makes you look up and wonder about the sky. Having the inspiration to do this for the youth of East Charlotte perfectly complements my creativity."
