Newaygo, MI, United States

My art educational background stems from a 2 year Commercial Art degree, to a bachelor's degree in Fine Art, ( Painting ) at Kendall College of Art and Design. Character like images formulate a major role in my content. These forms appear and disappear which gives the mind a visual playground. All of my work is based on an automatic process. It involves color, line, and encouraged by a surrealist attempt to show what's imagined. Line plays an important role throughout my work. It formulates an atmosphere of color, which is the organic growth of my composition. A limited color pallet of one color is dedicated to each piece. This way each one will have a dominating hue. My style is derived from many influences including, Mayan and Egyptian Glyphs, Comic Books, Persian and Oriental Rugs, Abstract Expressionism, Surrealism, Alchemy, Mysticism, Mythology, Pop, Tribal and Graffiti Art.
