I'm an Artist (that includes jeweler, painter, and crafter). I am always in flux, creating and recreating symbols of love, objects of desire, and images of meaning.
My Memento Mori drawings are an embodiment of my profound love of life and the realization of it's fragility. The notion of appreciating life through the constant reminder of death is an ancient concept that predates the Romans, and has taken many forms in different eras and cultures.
As a painter of women it is my desire to convey the many conflicted notions of the female symbol, both historically and as defined by modern culture. Sacred and profane, desired and reviled, women have become powerful fetishistic symbols of love, lust, affection, creation, destruction, obsession, just to name a few.
It is my desire through these creative endeavors and by building deep connections to like minded individuals, to create an empire. A subculture that celebrates life through adventure, conversation, art, music, and creative endeavors.
