This is a collection of drawings and paintings about things I've thought/felt or am currently thinking/feeling. They are simply my visual diary. Some express the hardships and negativity I've experienced, but the foundation behind them all is an appreciation for the contrast of life. The good things wouldn't be so good without the bad. An appreciation for the heavy variety in my life allows me to maintain the continuity of what's positive now. And the now is where it's at.
This series is also having a conversation with my "Orb" series. "Diary" is more so set in this physical time-space reality experiencing life while "Orbs" bounces off and away from that, falling into a vibrational realm (my imagination). These series ultimately embody the two dimensions I'm always playing in--the human condition, and the non-physical world in my head. "Diary" is the pioneer sifting through the variety of life in order to birth new desires for "Orbs" to expand on vibrationally. It's a never ending rendezvous.
This series is a reflection of my interests in our vibration, energy, the laws of the Universe, and the cooperative components of manifestation.
If we could physically see energy and vibration, what would it look like?
The interchanging shapes are a physical interpretation of what I imagine vibration to look like. These drawings and paintings act as a snap shot of the movement of that vibration (circles, triangles, and lines weave and overlap each other). This concept of movement is aimed toward capturing the vision of infinitely expanding vibrations that we, and nature, broadcast as we experience the contrast of life. Sometimes they create symmetry, sometimes not. Lack of symmetry signifies there being a discord in the alignment of vibration; your vibrational alignment with the vibration of who you really are. Symmetry is the perfect alignment with your pure positive energy within. I call these my orbs.

Series of micron pen/sharpie + paint portrait illustrations, hand drawn.
Taking elements of nature and combining them into one form.
This series is my visual interpretation of going through different stages of enlightenment as a human being, and allowing harbored negativity to flood out.
I imagine it as falling into a pure body of water, letting all the thick black ink flow from out of the mind body and soul.
