Message me for details or questions. Broken Rock Studio was created when I decide to pursue this talent I was given in earnest. I have always been able to draw but in recent years the urge has grown and has become a refuge of sort.
'I have buried the wounds of my heart in a field of Broken Rock…tightly fit…buried deep. Salvation is given….but freedom is earned...not by merely uttering the words…but by your blood soaked hands as you face the demons under every rock.
For I was the one who buried the beasts – not for crimes of the spirit – but for safekeeping, like pets to let loose in moments of weakness…
because just as I have entombed them…they have imprisoned me.'
