Since I started painting abstracts and cubist-style drawings, I’ve had a vision to create art and lots of it. From lucid dreams to moments of anxiety, it’s important to express these thoughts, feelings, and emotions before they pass me by. To capture an expression is therapeutic to me, whether it’s happiness, sadness, distress, or pure goofiness, I wish for everyone to see it through my eyes as it plays on the canvas.
Every painting is always a new adventure. I take to the canvas with charcoal, marker, brush, paint, and knife. The medium materializes upon the complexity and timing of the piece. Oil paint means patience, something I often lack, but work hard to achieve. Acrylic paint is used most often when the moment of inspiration comes, and I want to capture it in one sitting.
Being a musician for most of my life, I love to entertain people, and I wish to do the same with my bold colors, brush strokes, geometry, and line work. I’m not about perfection, instead it’s about the concept, the idea that moves me. Showing my work and flaws along the way is just part of the artistic journey; it’s the roadmap I pave and leave behind.

I love many artists, however my main influences have been Picasso, Miro, De Kooning, Basquiat, Van Gogh, Motherwell, Haring, and Pollock. They have all laid the groundwork for what you see in my styles.
