I've been doing art since I was 14 years old. Weather it's painting , or taking Photos. I used to collect old cameras , growing up, I'd see one in a flea market or pawn shop , If it worked or not , I had to have it. They just fascinated me. Still do. For many years I've suffered from anxiety, and depression. Depression has gotten so much better, but the anxiety, is still there. For years My art, has just graced the walls of my home. No one saw it, I never showed anyone. I received an award from Congress my senior year of high school, For a mural I painted. After which I kind of closed up, and went down different paths. Over the last 2 years I've really started to come out more. December of 2015, was the first time I had shown anything of mine since high school. I'm 33 now.
People seemed to enjoy my photos. My first showing in St Louis was " 33 january" .I had just gotten out of the hospital from a very long haul, I almost didn't make it. Since then I haven't held back. I almost died , and when I think about it I would have not really accomplished much. So I started showing my art more on instagram, and facebook, and in shows. I was part of a charity art show in Chicago in april and it was the coolest thing I had ever experienced. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of the showings at the Old Orchard Gallery. Every time I walk in, my Anxiety kicks into high gear , I've never been so nervous in my life, but I make the best of a wonderful experience. I eventually would like to do art full time for a living, but until that time comes I will continue to work hard for my goal. This link I am posting is to a series I did called "I love you to death" . One of the prints from this series was put up for charity in Chicago. A few of these have shown in the " 33 "shows. I hope you enjoy. https://youtu.be/UlHtR70PSaQ
