MICHAEL V. LAS CASAS
I am an artist. I look at the world with a different view than others, I try to translate those thoughts, those feelings those moments into my works. If I told you everything I wanted to say about a piece, I would be robbing you of your own self-identity. I have been creating art since I was a child, often getting into trouble for not doing what I was "supposed" to be doing, because I was doing what I could not deny within myself, but then, I guess, I was doing what I was supposed to be doing after all, and still am. I often get asked; "What is your favorite medium?" I don't have a favorite, that's not what it is about, it's about creating art, however I choose to create it, with whatever I feel will translate my creation the best way possible. I am an artist, I am an art instructor, and I am a human being. My "credentials"? I have pencils and paper.
