BIO: What can I say to entice you, I led a good life, spoiled child, had all I needed, Middle class existence. However, one thing that haunted my world was my depression. From low self-esteem to no urge to work a thankless job, I have felt the noose tighten around my neck. And in my 40 years on this planet, it still remains. Solace came first in the form of poetry, where my emotions could flow as the river onto the writing pad. Music was also there, a way to distract and join in with others, although, my introversion lingered in the background. Three years ago I discovered my now self-imposed therapy, my wonderland of exstacy, the capture of my bitterness and delightful days. Whether it extends from brush to canvas, from camera to the mind's eye, or the smartphone to the computer, I was found. For all of you, I share the inner workings of my being, all that I observe and record from each and every day. Please enjoy it in what ever way possible, but do please remember.

Depression, anxiety, these things effect humanity in ways that astound the mind. As a chain coils around those bound and trapped, so does the power of seeing one's self as incomplete, disgusting, powerless, useless. To break free from these binds is to know happiness. For myself, art was the way to inner peace. With each brushstroke, I purge the filth and decay that clings to my very existance. With each work of art, I share a piece of myself, hoping all will understand my pain. I ask you to look within, find that which hurts you, and destroy it through the power of creation. Let the light shine.
