I'm a creative person who supports The Creative. I believe it's alright to have your own thing happening, to question everything and to live your own purpose without anyone's approval... Simply put, Be Different, Be Defiant, Be Free
I don't get too caught up in the type of artist I am. Painter, fashion designer, graphic designer,musician etc. I'm more concerned with doing Great work.
There are 3 main parts to my art. First, my work starts in the trash, usually with a piece of wood I find that looks cool to create my next piece. I love working with wood because there's something alive with it and the imperfections are perfect for me. Plus, if someone's in your house that shouldn't be there, you can use the piece as a weapon.
Second, the topic usually varies from an Icon to a newborn, but the magic is in the detailing and texturing. I want my work to be touched. I like scuff marks because of the edginess and toughness it gives it.
And lastly, my signature. I've often used it as part of the piece rather than a smaller placement... What I think is cool about it is that the little man represents Voodo and Fe' is the first syllable of My Mother's name, Feronie. Put it together and you have Voodo Fe' (Hi Ma..!)
Ok, I know it's not a "usual portrait," but "usual" bores the hell out of me... I feel if I'm doing a piece for someone, it should be the center piece of the room and that the person has a pride in seeing themselves in a different light than what they might have expected. I'll add details that aren't in the original photo, often based on what the eyes tell me to do.
Here's a few of the more interesting people I've done. Some of these people I know, some off the internet, some from random pics...
There are some people on the planet that have changed me as a person. They have forced me to ask myself "Am I willing to BE the miracle I want to SEE?" People who took a chance, who focused on their goals and not on someone else's goals for them... These cats did it their way and challenged the status quo with an audacity and confidence that I personally applaud... Here are a few of the People I respect as 'Iconic'
I really like detailing and adding texture to my pieces. I wanted to add this collection of things that are seen as bad and turn them into great art. There's something cool that happens when these textures come together and kinda forms a new color.
I really love cartoons... I'm a Big kid at heart. I watch anything from American Dad to South Park to Rick & Morty and Archer. There's an amazing sense of creativity in animation and it's story telling. Nothing is ever limited... kinda how I believe life should be. For the sake of being unrealistic here's my 'Animated Art'
We created PAINTED THREAD by Voodo Fe', a merger of Art + Fashion. With my background in fashion design and art, I've been able to design a premium collection for Men, Women and Home Decor using my art as the main inspiration.

These unisex, unemotional, large eyed characters are called 'Terri's'... When I first got into painting, these were the first images I would paint. There's honestly no reason behind painting them other than I like to... Period
NBz is actually an animated story I created about following your heart.
On the surface, the NUTZ AND BOTZ are about these micro-nanobots that live in a human body and they don't know they live there. But, at its core, it's a story about RELO ODYSSEY, the leader of the Nutz, who follows his calling and goes on a journey throughout the body to find the heart.
