Due to the demeaning and sometimes graphic nature of bondage artwork, i want to make a statement of values so that they can be seen clearly as separate from my content.

I do not condone the content my art depicts. I do not tolerate the humiliation and degradation of women. There is nothing attractive about rape, or a person being held against their will. These are serious issues, which i will not entertain. Myself as well as probably most of you know someone who has personally been affected by this kind of tragedy and know too well how devastating it can be.

My art is intended as, and should be viewed as Role-play, which is of a consensual nature by all parties involved. All characters in my artwork should be assumed to be over 18 years old. Within certain context, i believe role-play can be used as a healthy release of creativity, sexual pleasure, and even love. I personally ascribe to the belief that that context is a wholesome marriage.

I believe above all else, in the sacredness of marriage, between a man and a woman. I love my wife more than anything else, and as my best friend, i must remain honest and open to establish a continued trust for a lasting marriage. My artwork is not a reflection, of the way we live, or even interact with each other. My art is a creative release as well as a source of income, and has no bearings on my relationships. My collections are meant to inspire, or be used for reference.

Just because a person enjoys art that some would deem "perverted", does not make that person a pervert. I have been been on the receiving end of such name calling, by others as well as myself. This kind of tactic breeds shame, which creates secrets. Secrets destroy trust, and hurt relationships with REAL people. This is a terrible cycle to which i do not wish to contribute.  

It's for that reason i wish to create a positive environment, where people can interact freely without discrimination. So please be kind to others, regardless if you agree or disagree about things. Try to encourage others, and interact in a positive manner. If you enjoy my art, that's great. If not, then that's okay too. In either case, please remember that there is a very clear line between reality and creative expression.

I am, first and foremost, an artist. And i intend to be true to myself to the end of my days. I hope you enjoy my art, please remember to be friendly, and help me create a positive environment. If you have any questions or, have an idea for a commission, feel free to drop me a note. Enjoy my art, and enjoy life.

how come the whole man+woman marriage thing? you seem so open to accepting deviations and creativity on the sexual spectrum it really seems out of place?

Well, that's because i love my wife and would never hurt her. This content doesn't take away from my affection toward her, nor should it. I have to be open with her about this stuff. If i we're doing this art and she didn't feel loved, then this stuff really would be out of place. Fantasy is okay, but you have to make sure the people you care about understand that you can separate fantasy from reality.

"the sacredness of marriage, between a man and a woman." - Just seems like a knock against lesbians?

Just because i personally don't ascribe to it myself, doesn't mean I think less of anyone. No judging, that'd be silly. I don't mean to offend anyone.

"Just because a person enjoys art that some would deem "perverted", does not make that person a pervert."
If someone who enjoyes stuff deemed as perverted by others isn't a pervert, then who is a real pervert?
No offense intended. It is just a question. As you can see from my profile if you're a pervert I am too. I'm just trying to understand what you think.

I think the point i was trying to make is just that we all like some things, that not everyone likes, and to try not to judge. Believe me, i know there are some sad and messed up people in the world, but it's not really fair to make assumptions is all.

reply well im a gag snob so basically if there not gagged i don't enjoy the work as much the problem is i sometimes watch horror snuff or hentai just for a good gag scene although i don't care for the rape or the killing that might take place in the films so technically im a pervert i guess willing to stand sick shit just to see if theres a good scene in there sometimes i feel like a bad person for this but now i know its normal that many people enjoy this fantasy and your only a pervert to people who don't understand it seems weird some peoples fetishes like my friend whose a artist as well he likes the girls but he mostly likes there feet lol now i think bondage is more interesting then tickling or foot fetishes but to each there own
