Biography[edit]

Born in a small town in Maine, I spent most of my childhood watching my Mother paint colorful characters for a series of childrens books and playing on a farm. I moved to Southern California when i was 13 and have since melded the simple life of my early years with the harsh environment that I live in now. In my canvas' and custom toys, I take the ideas of freeness and color from the abstract side of art and combine it with interstellar graffiti-like textures and cartoonish madness to create a unique and interesting style.

I have been painting for over 10 years in a mostly private capacity, but recently started branching out and trying to get my foot in the door, so to speak. Currently, I spend all of my time painting and trying to grow as an artist, always looking to find new platforms of vinyl that would be appropriate for my style and experimenting with new techniques, as well as trying to find a gallery or forum to show my work.

I've had no formal training, and I firmly believe that teachers can turn creativity into commercialism, so I taught myself how to paint from constant review of my many Salvador Dali and Ralph Steadman books, as well as countless hours (and gallons of wasted paint) experimenting with different mediums, colors and techniques.
