“The Up-Side of Down” was inspired by a 2009 assault and battery that hospitalized me with multiple facial fractures, severe eye trauma, and a concussion. My signature icon, which I saw flashing in my head during my concussive state, is a key repeating element in this series that represents life growing from death and discovering the positives in negatives.

Featured: I Will Never Let You Love Me (Because I Could Never Love Myself). Acrylic on panel. 72in x 24in. 2010. One of my older and darker (yet brighter) pieces that reflects upon concepts of love and, specifically, self love.
