I believe in energy, in all her various forms, I believe it exists everywhere and in all things, and I study from whence it comes. I try to show the conceptions and realizations from my studies and meditations through my art, which I hope will lead to conversations, which can change minds. I'm probably less of a traditional "artist" than I am a general "expressionist" so my expressions come in many forms.|
I'm bipolar, but I don't agree with either the diagnosis or the proposed remedies. I choose a natural way, with fewer poisons and side effects, and I've been both happy and stable with that approach for 5 years now.
I don't drink alcohol or use prescription drugs. I don't consume artificial chemicals (wherever possible, I'm in the midwest right now, after all). I meditate, exercise, and create something expressive daily, and it's a big part of what keeps me as balanced as I can be.
I'm a painter, photographer, woodworker, inventor, blogger (Google+ "M. Garrett" aka "Bipolar Conduktor"), YouTuber (BipolarConduktor and Delta9Radio Channels) among other things. I'm still learning the online marketplace, but I want to be a part of it. I don't know how to market, so you probably haven't heard about me, but I'm trying to get out there in different ways.
Thank you for coming to view my stuff, I really appreciate it.
I believe the world reflects us, it's exactly as we've made it - a mirror showing us what we've created with our beliefs, structures, and actions. I think it's up to us to change the things we don't like, and I think we (collectively) have all the power we need to do so.
I'm trying to make a life out of expression and social activism, since it's the only way it seems I can remain in a healthy state of mind, the world being the world. I've learned enough to know a life without expression would make me sick, and I'm trying to get out of the little bubble of conservatism I was conceived in to hopefully find others like me out West. My aim pointed directly at Colorado, where I hope to begin to really change people's minds about the kind of world we're going to allow to exist, using my art as a vehicle for those discussions.
Anything you purchase here will help me along that path, and I thank you for it. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, ideas, or collaborations you might be interested in.
And one last thing: carry the kind of energy you want to receive from the world. That's something we can all do, and it's not difficult. Thanks.
