This one hits home for me folks, it's a special image and thats why its my highest priced NFT to date. I would be happy to see it sell, but I would be just as happy to see it sit in my collection as a reminder of the journey I am on.
I have survived major injury, surgery, job loss, bankruptcy as well as emotional and mental health struggles. I have reinvented myself at 51, from a retail store manager, a corporate guy, to an artist, a visual story teller and a community supporter.
Since my rock bottom I have had solo exhibitions, an artist residency and sales across the world. Most recently I have had success in the NFT market, even having a foundation piece collected by an NFT icon.
I have come a long way, but as these tracks lead into the distance, it remind me the journey is still continuing.
BUT.... I am on the right track.
This photo if collected will be accompanied by an acrylic print and a hand written note of thanks.
Friends. Welcome to the Old Bones Collection
I had a complete collapse about 2 years ago. Spinal injury, multiple surgeries, job loss, bankruptcy. It was as low as I could ever imagine going. I battled depression, deep dark depression, anxiety, self doubt and insomnia. I was, frankly, destroyed.
It was about that time that I rediscovered photography. My wife, god love her, was my rock. She managed to scrounge enough money to get me a used, 10 year old, digital camera. She saw more clearly than I did, that photography could literally save my life.
Fast forward two years and I am pleased to say, it has.
I have come a long way. I have had solo and group shows, had my work featured in print and digital media, have sold my work across the world, as close as down the street, as far away as New Zealand. I have had an artist residency, and, am now pleased to offer NFTS to the world.
These works are my reflection, my salvation. Thank you.
