All Life is An Experiment

Over the past few years, I've come into myself. I've let go of insecurities in life and in my art. I've set goals, I've gone on adventures, I've scared the hell out of myself and most of all I've learned so much.

All Life is an Experiment is really the essence of how I'd like to live my life. My art is a reflection of that. Ralph Waldo Emerson is perhaps my favorite writer and philosopher and he said it best with this simple quote. Why not make the most out of life by experimenting with the short time we have on this Earth?

I've always tried to make life exciting, and I thought, up until I turned 29, that I was doing everything I could to live a fulfilling and adventurous life... but, that minute I turned 29 -- that realization that my twenties were nearly over -- was the minute everything clicked. It's time to take advantage of my freedom and my youth... two things you can never get back.

I hope this is reflected in my art and I hope my bold use of color inspires you to make more adventures and experimental decisions in your day-to-day life.
