Another of my self portraits. I have been feeling…out of sorts…this day. I think due to some high anxiety and panic. I felt awful, as though I was taking a step back when I have been ‘normal’ for so many weeks…I remember feeling very dizzy and surreal while working on this piece, almost drunk with inspiration….

I literally used my hands for this piece, minimal brush work…scratched and teared at the paint…smudging charcoal and pastels….getting my hands so dirty made me feel so much better….

Media Used: collage, acrylic, charcoal, pastels, ink on two layers of charcoal paper 12 × 18

Available as a t-shirt


I am a graphic designer and fine artist. I am an obsessed designer and compelled artist. I enjoy painting, drawing, creating my own textures and images for my designs. Through my art and designs I hope to awaken raw emotions from the viewer.
