Artist Statement

Acrylic paint, coloured markers, charcoal and blood. My life fell apart and I lived on the street for two months. I wanted to die , in a rage I opened up my arm and let it drip on the art . This art work shows my interal struggle with crystal meth addiction, good and evil. I'm trying to get to God at the same time trying to ignore the devil.
