Day Jobs

There is not much that we wouldn’t try at least once. Like everyone in the world, we are just trying to make it, and to enjoy ourselves along the way.

We are both graced with talent and ambition to make our ‘dreams’ realized, but goddammit, it is so freaking hard. We do work our butts off and everything feels hard, but we are ticking up the ladder as we go. It’s challenging to keep the balance with our work, our family life and Ra’Co – wanting to have it all.

I am passionate, fresh, creative and full of ideas. I have run an International company called TILT and consulted on a regular basis. My side projects have always included furthering my education such as participating in research projects and connecting with like-minded individuals.”

Kurtis Brand

“I have not made a career of art, I have made a career of life. My ambition has only been to understand myself. It is only now that I have lived and begun to understand myself that I can begin to pursue my art in a way that I have not done before. My art is highly personal and I want all of my materials to represent me or my loved ones. A used toothpick, an eye patch, a baby blanket or a t shirt all become sources of realization. Each one carries memory, experience and power much like a lock of hair used to cast a spell on an unassuming victim.”
