Greg Craola Simkins
"I’m scared of losing the excitement of discovery I had as a child; new adventures in every book I read, rabbit holes to fall down, wardrobes to explore, beds to get lost under. Diving into a new painting is like recreating the feelings of being young again. The insecurities are still there, yet the freedom is overwhelming. Where else can you run into fantastic creatures and surreal landscapes than in your own imagination? Art has always been my place to go since I was a kid. Form picking up my first crayon, pencil, pen, spray-can, computer tablet, and finally paintbrush, the possibilities seem endless. Continuing the journey is all I can do right now and see where it takes me."
