Forging Ladders

Life; this existence that we are so sure about. Do you feel like you know why you are here? How have you played your cards?

Mandala 2017

Mandala – “By the River” 2017 This mandala is the only color piece I have created to date. Way back when art was my major, I enjoyed using acrylic paint.

It has one of those classic tattoo vibes and the differing patterns and textures are really pleasing to look at. I was given the canvas paper by this guy I had met that I thought was […]
