Zodiac: Libra/Scorpio Sun, Taurus Moon, Aquarius Rising
I am a life-long student. While striving for mastery, my aim is to proceed with 'beginner's mind'. Looking with new eyes, staying humble, and knowing that there is always more to learn. I am constantly studying different subjects, ranging from human optimization & exercise, to comedy and astrology, natural science and geometry. I have always been drawn to symbolism & layers of meaning, and found (in my mid-twenties) that I have a strong intuitive understanding of the zodiac & animal symbols. Once I started walking down these roads, I realized that they are lifelong pathways, that just go deeper and deeper, further and further. I am currently making paintings for a Spirit Animal card deck, and I plan to create a Tarot deck once I have a greater understanding of the symbolism (and some collaborators). I endeavor to use the symbols that already exist, by any means necessary, to spread self-awareness and connection to our surroundings.
I am here to help. My name Alec means helper & protector of mankind. I am an artist, a skier & a diplomat in training. My aim is to bring beauty & peace. To paint with symbols and ideas from across the world, to interact with many different people and cultures, using the global language of art. I am on a mission of transformation. In my life, I have been shown again and again the power of art. I have seen the way that one piece can completely change a room or a household, and I've seen how artists have changed the shape of culture and civilization as a whole. So I have started to think much more carefully about the vibrations that I give to the world.
I realized a couple years ago that I was mostly living as a consumer. I was taking more than I was giving, and feeling like I never had enough! Now I have changed my outlook. I have seen the change in my own mind, and the world around me, when I give as much as possible. It's a beautiful and tangible shift, and I can also tell when I stop giving, and start to feel a sense of scarcity. I believe We are all creator beings, we are here to give our gifts to the world around us. The purpose of my art & my life is to spread love, unity and compassion. We are in need of a restructuring of society & culture, and a re-examination of outmoded systems of government and control. We cannot truly be free, while our brothers and sisters live their lives behind bars, or in fear and poverty, starvation and disease. I am on a mission to bring peace and balance. I have no idea how to do this, so I'm going to need your help. I believe that one of the keys is awareness and that another is compassion. We are all brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, daughters and sons of the earth. We are One race together. The human race. We are the stewards of this planet, let's take care of it.
