The item arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Great seller, I would buy from them again.


Where the strange is normal and the ugly, idolized.

Over the last 10 years I have shared my work virtually, eventually accruing an unexpected fan base for my distorted worlds - thus, "Beauty In The Decay" was born.

I aim to convey beauty in the darkest recesses, embracing the uncomfortable and unknown - to challenge the viewer to face the negative with the positive as in life both are necessary. If we choose to neglect the unsettling, we may miss that sign of decay behind the aesthetic or the beautiful lesson beneath the decay.
