I am Jacob DeMize from New Orleans Louisiana. Although I have no formal training in art, I've always felt a great need to express myself artistically. Creativity has carried me through very challenging and difficult times. It is and has been an ever evolving path to personal and spiritual growth.
My current work is thought provoking. Dark, Raw, layered images and sometimes specific statement words are used to enhance the feeling of each piece. Through them my story is told.
Life experiences that include physical and sexual abuse tested my will to survive. Through creativity I found my voice and my salvation. I turned unrelenting pain into creative power and individuality.
Rise Strong, Awakened and Present, I am Jacob DeMize.
