Californian Painter Kelsey Brookes "Art was simply more fun"

Kelsey Brookes is a well-known artist from California. 
He calls himself an "artist of contrasts" who works on mixed-media
 assemblages. His work  is represented in La Jolla, Los Angeles and London. 
It has appeared in magazines such as GQ, Modern Painters and Confused. 
Looking at them for the first time it seems like you are looking at an 
explosion, an explosion of colours and emotions. 

Kelsey decided to stop working as a scientist and devote his life fully to art. 
"Art was simply more fun than science and I put great value on having fun", he says. 
And Kelsey is sure, that it was worth the trade. His List of Inspiration is long: Nature, 
Animals, Instinct, Conversations, Jokes, Galleries, Museums, Art, Books, Blogs...
Any career advice for young artists, Kelsey?
And that's what he says: Have fun and work hard at what you love. 
Everything else is a distraction.
