Back when I was a little bambino I knew I wanted to be an artist. My school notebook was covered front to back with my drawings. Being raised in a creative environment fed the flame. I guess you could say art is in my blood.
My work reflects my interests in mid century artifacts deco style, tiki lounge, atomic futurism to mention just a few. Images of past pop culture mixed with current day pop culture provide an endless source of inspiration and possibilities for me. This creative energy is what I thrive on and live for.
I graduated from the Colorodo institute of art with a background in graphic design and illustration. After working for various ad agencies and in house art departments I had a burning inside to be painting again. I quit working for the man to pursue painting full time. That was over 10 years ago and I’ve never looked back.
