Who are You?

I am a native of the state of Wisconsin in the US, and I have created “art” in some form or another in an arguably serious capacity for the better part of the past 20 years.

The forms of art that I’ve always been inspired by have all had this in common: The alchemical shift on an individual level with traditional painting as a catalyst, especially in response to sadomasochistic child abuse and its echoes into adulthood, and that has been just one of the things I’ve gravitated toward with art and the endless ways it can be misinterpreted.

My current work revolves around the concept of the collective experience of time, ideology and distraction in the context of the rise and fall of civilizations.

This involves the delicate process of creating and nurturing something with all the superhuman motivation of desire and love, knowing that it will end at some point in this existence, but cultivating the self-awareness that transcends nihilism, cynicism, apathy, and complacency, knowing that this definition of love and will has been at the core of evolution since pre-history.
