we all have heroes and heathens in our lives, and most of us are both. if you look closely into our eyes, you can see the same cluster of stars and particles that exist deep in outer space. people may succumb to their inner heathen, and capable of great things in realizing we are made of the same matter as stars. i hope that art lovers will connect with my paintings and feel inspired. the purpose of my artwork is to share love and light through creativity, as a way of genuinely engaging with the world as a real contributor. always strive to be better. spread love and light. hotep. know thyself. love wadecreate.
