"What I am looking to do as an artist is to express my voice, and since my work is representational in nature but still very eclectic, I like to experiment with different mediums and styles. As people we are fluid, dynamic, ever changing. My art will change because I will change. Ultimately I believe that whatever creative expression you give to the world -- it is, and can only be, a reflection of yourself." - Jim Minet
