DETOURArtStudio\\ is all about moving past the ordinary and making innovative and new art; from simple concepts to some of the most outlandish ideas conceived of. Creativity is the key to creating the long lasting and meaningful art; however unappreciated it may be at the time of creation.

   Do what you love and don't let any person tell you what to be. The best advice was given to me by my grandfather and the legendary Saul Williams. My grandfather told me to never lie and to leave no regrets. Saul Williams told me to stop putting so many of my eggs in plan b and put them all in plan A. Together the advice is sure to get me where I want to be.
