The theme behind most of artistic efforts. As my artistry leans towards a Primitive Literalism (Avant-garde), my heart and mind continue to expand in color expressionism that allows my spirit and soul comfort.

As stated by the Artist; 
?This image was created in a genre of Abstract Expressionism to display the Energy and Enthusiasm of this Event.  I am Humbled to participate and hope that my Talent can bring auction funds and resources to give life & healing to others, Thank You!?
This Full Feature, True Story & Female Driven Narrative Film is about the life of Norma and her family history of struggle to become the Parent of a child with needs beyond any comprehension, only to find in the end an ending that will touch your core! Born into a life of isolation & pain with the graphic burden of surgical manipulation to function, walk & survive in a world of normalcy. The iconic image inspires still today and will present a platform for an audience into a never before filmed life inside a family struggling to accept reason! 

"Never in our silent moments of illusion do we sense the dark parallel that lives beside us. Nor do we suspect the carrier."

"A Wonderful commentary on the very things that make us all human" "Brave honesty of confession, makes the book unique" "Touching story, full of hope" The story is not only convincingly true, but will rivet the reader with its genuine and unassuming pathos.

?This Adaptation of Norma Jean?s Sun is a memoir that came from the depths of one man?s struggle to become a predefined member of a social mold which was never cast.?

A confinement that would later serve to encapsulate, isolate and establish a prototype of life not understood or sought by those watching. Blessing, punishment or choice is a position each is given and though not all will genesis into a full heart, most can adapt through perseverance. Yet in this episode, you will question on how or who provided the seed to a life of strife. Further, worth following? The story is described by reviewers as ?Eloquent, stirring and emotional, inspirational to the courageous?

I am actively, humbly and sincere in my search for a champion to believe! I am submitting a blank slate, powerful Best Seller and an Artist View willing to become greater than the image in transparency and support of others!  I am eager to speak with you!  I know you will be moved and perhaps find yourself emotionally challenged by the strength of this message. In 2014, I wrote the initial working draft adaptation screenplay and am completely prepared to align in theme with a team of coverage, option and production. 

Miraculous tale of how a boy, born into unimaginable physical and emotional pain and destined to be a misfit, finds his way in a world of "others." Few could survive so many torturous years of surgical intervention and an ensuing lifelong struggle with drugs and alcohol addiction and come out ahead. This moving tale reveals not only the struggle and heartrending elements of generational lives "gone wrong," but also the love and growth of a human being overcoming the odds and determined to find a way to live life to the fullest. The unapologetic prose prompts enduring ethical questions and makes a gripping, personal read. The book ?Norma Jean's Sun? is painfully reflective yet ultimately hopeful, a story told through the eyes of a boy who believes he has been mistakenly born into the world and a man who conquers physical and emotional injustice--and thrives.  All while Norma, the protagonist, is met with difficult choices of her own to rise above with a brilliant grace!  The reader will be challenged to answer the difficult questions of right and wrong as they may apply to his or her own life to a conclusion that will lead to a more fulfilled view of the "parallel beauty that lives just beneath the surface for us all."

This story highlights the thousands of family dynamics that center on not only disabilities, but the taboo subject matter visible or implied.  As a child, I wrote the first page of this tale at 12.  All along knowing my life and the circumstances had a powerful content.  As an adult, the lessons obtained have given me creative energy & awareness to share this message.  My desire is to bring light and benefit to the millions who have lived and silently equaled in experiences similar to my own!  Many Matriarchs, Patriarchs and Children survive this day who understand and who wish share their story.
