I have been inspirited by the arts from an early age, so I have been drawing and painting for almost 20 years. My passion later delved me into photography amidst adolescence as I still had a lot of unrealized ideas and this medium allowed me to transcend these visions further. I use an assortment of tools such as digital software, or artificial and natural light as an aid to provide extra dimension, depth, and manifest a surreal quality upon occasion. I have various artistic endeavors that which will always remain vital in my life in hopes of surpassing the abilities or imagination of my younger self.
I am self-taught in all that I do -excluding my short experience in the darkroom for film photography-, for I have found this form of education to be an admirable art in itself. It is not compulsory, but self-initiated.
I dread not that my passion for knowledge be unquenchable, but rather a life of utter satisfaction. Complacency hinders growth as an artist and stunts improvement. One should abide by change and abjure fear.
Progression is relative - it is not absolute.
Many of my feelings are vague and I cannot easily verbalize how I experience life, so portraiture, drawing and writing are a natural language for me.
I am inspired by those who prove to me they aren't just another prototypical face. Anyone who possesses class, intellect, loyalty, beauty, talent, and isn't afraid of others presumptions of them, is a true inspiration.
I strive to give others a sense of hope and awareness,
simply to make a positive difference in any way, shape or form.
Everyone, everything is beautiful.
Just because you personally cannot see the beauty & meaning behind something.. Doesn't mean it isn't there.
I am far more than words; mere letters combined to form a sound.
I am incredibly grateful that I have the most wonderful supporters in my artistic career. I don't like to use the word "fans" as it seems impersonal to me. I love being in a position where I can speak to so many of you individually, where I otherwise would not have the opportunity, and receive such kind feedback. It means the world to me.
However, if you feel inclined to send me vulgar and distasteful messages or inappropriate content, spam my profile or photos, this behaviour will have you blocked.
I am quite happily taken! Thank you kindly for all the lovely messages, but I am inclined to respectfully decline your pursuits.
