Some people take great comfort in how their couch matches their flooring, their walls, their window trim. They find a certain safety in the connection between them. This is how I feel about textures and shadows. My work examines shadows, physical expression/emotion, textures and the relationships between them. My goal is to inspire others to dive into themselves, into the unknown and find a relationship there. A comfort, a connection. "If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it. Any other form of existence will be yet another dull book in the library of life." - Charles Bukowski DAMNED is, has been and shall forever be a huge opportunity and a DAMNED blessing for me. The atmosphere, the energy, the community is second to none. To say that DAMNED has become a family to me, is an understatement. Being an artist, we all have our particular skill sets. But DAMNED has pushed me to get better, to grow and to step out of my comfort zone. The way the artists are treated, exhibited and promoted is refreshing as well. I'm grateful for all of the hard work the DAMNED staff and its organizers have done for the community.
