Artist’s Thoughts: My journey as an artist began 11 years ago when I was introduced to the art of tattoos. I’m currently serving a prison sentence that I started at 19, and my rehabilitation has brought out the artistic talent that I may never have discovered. The arts have introduced me to language, religion, education, and trade skills, which are all intertwined. Studio Behind The Fence promotes my art to display and share my creations outside prison walls. My mother is very fond of dogs. I have drawn portraits of her Sheltie and Standard Poodle and decided that I wanted to research the Basset Hound breed, one I may adopt upon my release from prison. The Basset Hound puppies were so adorable with their long ears and puppy eyes I fell in love with them. My portrait of a Basset Hound puppy has been in the Edmonds Arts Festival 2022 and Artistonish May 2022.
