I am a butcher from LaGrange Indiana. I use the blood from the animals I harvest and process at my shop. There are no tools used to produce the paintings. Only blood, canvas, and my hands. I've been featured in several art shows and exhibits around the Ft. Wayne area, Sturgis Michigan, and my home town of LaGrange. Last year was my first year in Artprize and I was interviewed by Grand Rapids Channel 8 news, that led to their affiliate station in my area, South Bend Channel 22 to interview me at my butcher shop. The interview from WSBT Channel 22 quickly went viral across the country, with CNN picking up the interview as well. My project this year is to help raise awareness for Leukemia and Lymphoma patients. My art will be my interpretation of how blood gives life and takes life away.
