WHY "FIVE SIX"?
The "FiveSix or 56" in the name represents an urban area on the Northside of Houston, called Greenspoint, where I grew up. The bus route, 56 Circular, provided a chauffeur service for me to get to and from class while in college. The implementation of the "Greenspoint or 56" alias into my name, and business name was to show that positive people with creative abilities can come from an area of town that has a bad & negative representation.
While on this creative journey, before she passed, I was blessed to be taught and mentored by Kim Abshere, my Advanced Art Instructor. She explained that my surroundings do not define me but what I create from it, DOES. Blessed with a painted canvas of my animal totem.......The Bear, Mrs. Abshere always told us [students] to always protect your creative spirit. I hold to heart that PRICELESS gift, as It pushes and reminds me to "To create from the Soul". I dedicate my onward success to Kim Abshere. May she continue to be GOD's personal artist.
