Feel and Conquer


Captioned video tutorial of this piece can be found on my Youtube at

I spent some time reflecting on my life, from the dysfunctional family of my childhood to my current career as an artist, and how this path has shaped me.

I guess part of my recovery is just taking in my life experiences, my emotions, the happiness and the pain, and turn them into art. And through the process, I learn and understand just a little bit more about myself and the world around me.

Art has always been a powerful outlet that helped me and others communicate our ideas and emotions. For all the aspiring and young artists out there, don't let anyone discourage you. Be it random strangers on the internet or your own parents, no one knows you better than yourself, and no one lives your life except yourself. So don't ever let anyone take that away from you, your emotions, your art, your sense of self.

Draw for yourself, create for yourself, live for yourself.

You are great a artist! Although I am not a fan of this style of work, I must admit that it is about a beautifully done job. :) Really beautiful works. <3

This is what I have with the pictures when I create, I put into it all the energy I have, sometimes I am driven by sadness, sometimes joy, sometimes fear, sometimes inspiration ... but it is always the love I give to my work. :) <3

Could you please allow the option to buy this as a print, someone I care about would appreciate this very much as a Canvas.. Even if you just allow for a day or two. Please PM me.. Kind regards.

If I can say it, out of all the artworks in DA, this artwork is the one which I can relate the most with.
