PROFILE

I am a graduate of Kendall College of Art and Design with an Illustration major and Visual Communications minor. I am proficient in a variety of media, both traditional as well as digital. As you can see from my past work I enjoy images and forms that, to most, are considered odd and non traditional. I have been greatly influenced over the years by the art of the 80's - 90's surf and skate culture, the "lowbrow" movement, graffiti/street art, as well as an ever growing list of past icons and new up and comers. I gravitate toward individuals that push the visual envelope and present subject matter in new and interesting ways.

FLUID ACRYLIC PAINTING

A new process I've been working on.  The results are more fluid and organic than my prior works.  I love this loose reactionary process that forces me to mentally change gears and surrender my typical meticulously controlled approach displayed in most of my earlier pieces.

Originals as well as high res prints are available of all the works in this gallery.

ABSTRACT

Shape, color, texture.....

Some abstract works, because sometimes, I need to remind myself that not every piece needs a clearly defined subject matter, narrative, or identifiable imagery.
