Who I am

Like you, I've racked up some rough miles.

 

My shell and my soul don't match.

 

The scars on my mind and body are a road map to where I've been. It turns out; the same map is getting me to where I want to go.

I’m not saying I’ve arrived, but I’m going to wring every possible lesson from this life, to do anything less would be a waste. I try to leave some of the good stuff at Arise Ink in hopes that it helps you do the same.

The writing I do for The We Spot has to be exclusive to them, and I can't maintain two blogs. Since Arise Ink was already paid up for a while (and because I'm kind of attached to it) I decided to recreate this space as a place to post my artwork. 

I'm not selling anything, just collecting my own work, because what else am I supposed to do with it? There are a lot of experiments in here. There's a lot of self-prescribed art therapy. Decorating song lyrics definitely got me through the early pandemic days. Of course I have a story for just about everything. I'll fill them in over time.

I hope you enjoy, or are at least mildly amused.
