I began drawing and painting my senior year in high school however my work really didn't start to take a direction until around 2008. My paintings are focused on bright colors, playful and amusing themes, as well as exaggerated/twisted landscapes. For me they are an escape from the everyday grind, a memory of the fun things I have enjoyed in my life from amusement parks, beaches and boardwalks, to the movies with an emphasis on fantasy and animation. My tastes lean towards Maximalism which allows me to push my understanding and development of painting as an artist.
Artists that have influenced me include Ken Mabrey, H.R. Giger, Mark Messersmith, Stephanie Gutheil, Clive Barker, Tim Burton and my painting teacher Gus Sermas.
