My imagination is inspired everything. Especially, watching all kinds of movies, surrealism, comics, graffiti art, and a general interest in all things strange and bizarre. The style is molded from all the projects that Rob Zombie has been involved in, Salvador Dali, Bosch, Joel Peter Witkin, and old Insane Asylums. Occasionally, an emotionally charged deeper meaning to the artwork entails. Sometimes it's personal to reach people and other times it's anything imaginable. It's fun, exciting, and a great escape. I’ve been drawing since I was a kid. Moving around a lot, has made art my only solid connection in life. In High School, I mentored with a tattoo artist for a few years and he taught more techniques and opened doors to bring out this style of art. I hope to spark some inspiration in others so the fire rises. In 2005, I attended the Art Institute of Chicago for about a year and had some schooling at Kendall College.
