"Art has helped me overcome many horribly difficult journeys. 

I am sure I am not alone there. It's the power of choice. I choose to take the time to create great work that brings joy and hopefully joy for many others for many years to come.


As a survivor of Abuse, Addiction, and Mental Health Issues, it is my responsibility to show others that we do recover." - BWB

Do your Best, Do No Harm, and Do for yourself every single day so that you can do for others. If you can’t do for others, that just means you need to be doing for yourself right now and that is OKAY!
