Millions of people, just like you and I, create art as a means of relaxation and stress relief.

Through this initiative, we will interview and highlight the works of diverse artists who use various genres and mediums. 

By illuminating a cross-cultural appreciation for art and the artists who create the work, we hope to advance creative expression and awareness!

After declining an art scholarship in High School and a fifteen year hiatus from creating art in any form, I decided to dabble in psychedelics for the first time at the age of 35. From the moment I placed my stylus on my digital tablet my mind exploded with the realization that not only was I still able to apply some of the same basic artistic principles I had learned so long ago, but that I had spent the entirety of the past fifteen years focusing on the wrong career and wanting the wrong things out of life. At that time I had worked for ten years with the same company and in various roles within the Insurance Industry ranging from Marketing to Underwriting to Systems – and none of them ever seemed to fit. Ultimately, I had spent a lifetime ignoring my creative potential and the use of psychedelics helped me to accept myself as what I am and had always been – a visual artist.

Thus far, I have photographed bands such as Anthrax, ODESZA, Portugal. The Man, Sleep, and an expanding list of other ultra-talented local and national artists. I have met so many new and interesting creatives along the way that have supported and inspired me to pursue my dreams and carve my own life path. Without their love and acceptance, there would be no Murder Basement and for that I am forever thankful.
So this is the world around me… at least as I see it. Just murder it.
