Me with Painting copy copy.jpg

HI, I’M DAMIAN, AND I WORK AT THE INTERSECTION OF CONFLICT, ART, AND DESIGN.

I love to create, especially when it completes an inner process or vision. I’ve turned struggles and states of mind into artwork into rent money and have helped others do the same.

I've loved to draw and make stuff since I was a kid and have been studying conflict facilitation and meditation for the past six years.

Aside from the work you see here, my BIG CONCRETE MISSION is to buy, develop, and tend to a piece of land that will have my home, a forest, some water to swim in, and more. I’d like to design and build the home from scratch, let the surrounding nature tend to itself and leave it mostly undisturbed, and invite people to come get creative, understand the land, and take a break from city life.

You can hire me to either:

  1. Create a piece of art/design ($1,000+). Most people who hire me either come up with a fresh new idea or come to me with something they like about my previous work and want their own spin on it. You don’t have to know what you want at first. Helping you figure that out is part of my gig.

  2. Facilitate conflict/creative process ($90/hr). Most people fight against their issues. That can sometimes be useful, but I also work on how to use them to get more grounded, real, successful, interesting, or otherwise.
