This is a very hard thing for me to admit, but early in my art career I used performance enhancing drugs.

It was not something I thought I would ever do, but the pressure in the art world was very intense, and the competition was overwhelming. Sadly, I eventually gave in and began to use substances that were banned in art competition.

I want to apologize to all my collectors and supporters over the years.

I know I have let you down.

I especially want to apologize to my mother.

She was unaware of my drug use, and I told her my success was due to the Hostess Cupcakes she had given me after school.
