Rise Above

I was commissioned to do a mural for a party promoter in the late 90’s.  It was for a really respected dj and the commission was probably the biggest I had ever received at that point in my life. To top it off the promoter was also an artist, so I was completely empowered to create what I felt was best for the event.  His wife was a phenomenal dj and visual artist as well so it was an awesome learning opportunity as I went on to do a lot of other events and bigger shows because of their generosity.  This positive experience was instrumental in my understanding of my worth as an artist.
