Born from dust of the Earth, I bring forth my representations of life for you to see.

Throughout my life I have always been involved in art. When I was a child I was pulled from class to study art because they felt I "had a gift". Well I was a great drawer and really really good at making clay shrooms. I have a lot lying around still.

Well when I was about 13 I quit focusing on drawing and writing as I had before and focused on music. Music has been my life for many years. It touched my soul and inspires all my paintings.

In April 2011, I picked up the brush and began painting. I had never tried the medium seriously before and I really enjoyed it. After a few paintings I was hooked.

Now I try to express my views on philosophy and life through art instead of music. (though I still aggressively record music of the avant garde)

Please look deep in my paintings, you may teach me something with your comments. I am a humble artist. I want to learn from you...

Your paintings keep getting better and better. It is a pleasure to see your talent and self-expression (your you-ness) on Deviant Art.

Hey man, your gallery is inspirational. It is a legitimate digital art gallery. I feel like I'm reliving "The history of modern art" from university. Keep it up. 
I know we haven't been in touch lately- but have a great day anyhow!
Yo, bro, still kickin' it?
Happy Birthday!!! :)
