Welcome and thank you so much for the kudos' and enthusiasm of my artwork. It has been a lifetime passion to design and create works of art that touch the soul and peak one's sensuality.
Even though I am actually retired Nuclear Medicine with a Post Graduate out of Loma Linda University and spent almost 20 years in the diagnostic radiology fields. From the time I was born and raised you could find me hiding from the daily , chores clutching a pencil and paper! I was raised on a ranch and it was chores during the day and painting at night. From job to job growing up the obsession never stopped. I have done many things from cosmetology to Realtor to Nuclear Medicine. Some things good some bad and some names changed to protect the innocent LOL
I have been through many trials and tribulations through out life. All have taught me a lessons to learn from. I have actually been through 23 major surgeries. And through many accidents, some I have seen the tunnel with the bright light at the end. I am in fact rated as amputation of the right hand from and industrial near fatal accident in 1988, and amputation of the left thumb from a near fatal drilling rig accident in 1983. So I have had to do my work with one or the other hands in a cast. lOL I do in fact do my do my art work ambidextrously.
I am self taught thanxs to my aunt and cousins that would give me my first paints and brushes and canvas. I had been painting with oils and acrylics since age 12. When I am in the middle of a portrait or picture with meaning, my adrenaline flows the whole time I am creating it. And when the person I do the portrait for or the animal or scenery, cries when they look at it. I know and feel as though I did my job. :)
Every single piece of art has a story that touched my heart and a typical creation takes hundred of hours to manifest itself into its ultimate reality. I enjoy doing the same picture in many different mediums, Hence ' Mayhem Mediums' . I will do a picture in a graphite drawing for every one of my pieces that will generally take 100 hours. Then from there take it to pointillism or a pastel or a white or black charcoal or a oil or an acrylic and or a digital enhanced piece of one of my originals. Usually if I turn it to a Pointillism or pastel it will take another couple hundred hours at least.
I am honored and thank each and every one of you who proudly hang an original Helm and for those of you who haven't yet 'discovered' me, well.....come visit! Capture a piece of seduction and passion in your life - you won't regret it!
