i want to paint all day and whisper hidden secrets in the ears of anyone that i wll listen.
I want to scream with the passion of a thousand angels and sing a sweet song in glory of what i have become.
art is my life and is the only sense of comfort i can manifest in this world.
Everyone should dream with their eyes open.
I have something called Trigeminal Neuralgia, it is known medicaly as the most painful thing any person can experience. I have veins wraped around the nerve and artery at the base of my brain, which causes the nerves to fire, therefore i am being elextricuted in my face miscelaneously throughout the day. it is a debilitating pain which i am learning to live with, it is too painful to talk, eat, or do much of anything when i am experiencing an attack. i was diagnosed when i was 17 and underwent my first brain surgrey when i was 19. i was the second youngest person to ever undergo the microvascular decompression and retromastoid crainectomy. i did this after going through every andi-conculsent and every muscle relaxer until i had no other choice. i had imediate reliefe after the surgery and was finally able to paint, draw, and live life again. i am now 24 and the pain has returned. the veins grew back around my nerve, so, i went and had the surgery done a second time. to my dismay, the surgery was a failure. i now am undergoing the medication therapy where i go through the meds again from the begining again. this means that i start at the lowest dose and go to the highest possible dose until i either have relief or get sick or overdose accidentaly because it is a dangerous process. i am now on about 15 pills 3x a day and struggle to keep focus on much of anything. i wish i could paint again but it has become very hard. i draw whenever i am able but it is extreemly hard. i have made a vow to never give up hope because i know that one day i will be pain free again and able to persue the art that is the love of my life.
my artwork is mostly done in acrylic, pen/ink, and guache, on canvas, paper, and bristol board. Also, Graphic Design with photoshop and illustrator
i was educated in fine art on my own and from what i remembered in high school. i am self-taught in the techniques i use. I do have a degree in graphic design from the Art Institute of Washington in VA. I have 3cd's nationwide with my graphic art designs and also have desinged many t-shirts, flyers, stickers, ect. I have had several fine art shows in the DC and Baltimore area and i have currently moved to North Carolina and am hoping to join the art community in Wilmington.
