A profound psychedelic experience happened to me

once that changed my whole outlook on life. At

the time, I was wading in the water with no

direction and no desires. I believe when you're

lost you look for guidance in many forms,

whether it be religion or mind-altering

substances. I found mine in both. The trip came

at me like a ship trying to navigate through a

storm. When the storm passed, a golden light

shined through and showed me a way. A way out of

misery and a way to pursue my happiness. Fractal

lines danced across my eyes and it’s at that

moment I decided to go back to my first love and

begin creating art again.

My work is deeply symbolic of my experience as I

have incorporated the fractal lines, I refer to

as TWIGS, into my paintings. Transcendence and

meditation are common themes in my work. The

cubes I frequently draw represent a reminder of

where I was at. Boxed in by fear and doubt. The

reaction I hope to achieve is for the viewer to

find their way. To find their way and pursue it

as if your life depends on it because it does.
