I believe that in our darkest moments we discover our true selves, when we are able to survive the conflicts that life brings us the purgation of this negativity allows us to grow as human beings. Pain allows us to realize what it is to be truly alive. My art is an expression of that realization. A physical manifestation of the thoughts I am both blessed with and condemned by on a daily basis. I am very aware of who I am, how I present myself and how people perceive me. My artwork, whether it be photography, painting, drawing, writing or music is a reflection of my bare soul at the time of the art's creation. It is my hope that my art will lead people to recognize and confront the negativity in their lives and come to terms with it. I ask you to deal with it how you will for I will change for no one.
