Is it really a brand if it’s not branded? I’m not talking about branded on the flesh. I’m talking about branded on the soul. Acrylic Alchemy isn’t a marketing ploy. It’s a way of life. It’s about life growing from death. It’s about using your greatest struggles as a source of fuel to create something positive and beautiful for the world. Now more than ever, it’s important to believe in something…to stand for something. That something should start with the person in the mirror.

I started sharing the #MostlyForHer pieces for those struggling to find love or their place in this world, whether that be for a second, an hour, a day, or your entire life. The fact that the thing connecting me most to this world is my disassociation from it aptly alludes to the tragic comedy of life…a beautiful disaster spilled upon a raw canvas for all to view on exhibit and publicly judge as they see fit.
