Hello. I came across your name on in the news, and subsequently googled it and found some Crisis videos on YouTube, along with your blog and website. I have to say, I am simply amazed by the artistry of your existence. Your painting are very, very good and I can't believe you're self-taught! It is so refreshing to see an artist of your caliber share such great items on here! Your voice is absolutely unique, and you accomplish such extreme dynamics with it, I really can't believe I haven't heard of you guys before now! I love metal, and you have a very suitable voice for it; I really hope your new solo endeavour reflects that...I'm looking forward to it. I can't find any links for it, and 2012 is almost over, but I will definitely be searching for your new album, especially with the great musicians associated with it. I feel privileged to have discovered such a modern artist as yourself, totally committed, who values marriage and health above all..who holds fast to classical and historical teachings..who contributes to the awesome flavor of the world. Anyway, I'm sorry to gush on, I only pray for health of your family and wish you many greater things. Saluti!

Thank you for your generous words of support, and for taking a peek into my creative past and present! I've always felt out-of-time and place on this planet. Expressing myself creatively, I've come to learn, is a daring act of self-love. It's not always easy, sometimes downright torturous, but it is also freedom. My work tends to polarize people: they love it or hate it,and I don't ever seem to fit in anywhere. Especially in light of that, and also regardless of strong reactions, I carry on being me, my way. That's what this weird thing called "life" is about, creating "self", and knowing "self" through experience. While I create as a need to release and receive, as natural flow of energy, thank you for taking an interest and following my breadcrumbs in the forest. Best to you!
