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...

Bummer....cool. I suck at life, but I found some inspiration that I truly understand. I started reading rock star biography books. (Ozzy, Mustaine, Iommi & Slash so far) 

My horrible paintings never looked nightmarish enough to me. The look of my current wip was inspired by silent horror movies and Auschwitz. Scarier looking and less work sounds like a good recipe!

Appreciate your comment and I agree with you. I have never shown my work until I joined DA 10 months ago. Most of the paintings that I've submitted are from work I have saved on my PC and the pictures were taken with my Iphone. I had no need to upgrade to a digital camera because I never planned on posting my work online. I know I need to upgrade to a digital camera.
Thank you....DR

I'm a fan of your work...especially you recent paintings. Love the graffiti pieces.
