A piece created to portray the concept of perceiving human emotion like flavors of ice cream. Each tastes different, each provides the other person with a different experience, but at it's core, it's still that delicious treat we all love - just like being human. Original work donated for charity at The Thompson Center for Autism in Columbia, MO.

A modernized version of a motivational poster from a publication back from the 1900's about ones journey to achieve success, and the many different challenges, distractions, hindrances, or advancements they will encounter along the way. Commissioned work.
A piece based on visions I saw while deep in meditation, which conveys a a creative person, who is provided all the resources they need. The image represents support, materials, guidance, and education all being provided by the world, and the creative being using them to cultivate and create something amazing.

Imagery that represents the manipulator, or deceiver in one's life. Those who seek to take advantage of those for their own gain (especially those with lack of natural awareness such as myself). Falling for manipulators has been a common theme in my life. Combined with a childhood full of stories about greek mythology.
(Pen on paper)
Inspired by the Japanese Shinigami "God of Death" coupled with the phrase: "Staring death in the face."

This is one of those interesting examples of when my direction for a project turns out to have a different result that originally planned. Client asked for a tattoo design, and has yet to complete our terms of agreement, however the design for the bees inside the triangle around the flowers was supposed to have 4 bees, displaying the beauty of the geometrical shapes of honeycombs, while paying tribute to honeybees themselves. - Instead, the unfinished sections became art themselves, and now it conveys the reality of what is happening with honeybees in our environment, how how they as well as other animal species are fading out due to human practices. This art celebrates the animals we live with on this planet and reminds us that we don't have access to such abundance of great provisions without them. Especially bees!
I founded The Creationist Alliance, a nonprofit organization with the mission of developing holistically designed art studios for Neurodivergent individuals, including those with Autism. 100% of funds from the sale of any art featured here will be used to support the creative expression of Neurodivergent artists.
