Thank you for checking out my website!

Being an artist is part of who I am, it is in my soul. If I am not creating I do not feel whole. I am not just painter, but a writer, an illustrator, a photographer, an artisan candle maker.  

I first picked up a paintbrush when I was 15 years old as a way to get my feelings out, and for the majority of my life I have been creating in some way or another. Always drawing, doodling, painting, sewing, and so on.

I am back from a long hiatus that I took from painting. I still don't know why I did what I did, but I know that I am happy to be back and a part of the world of art once again. 

As an artist I consider myself a contemporary expressionists and abstract artist (as if these types of labels really matter). I take my inspiration from great Neo-expressionists such as Jean-Michele Basquiat, Max Hetzler, and Martin Kippenberger just to name a few. 

I am fascinated with with the simplicity, playfulness, and innocence of children's drawings, and work to add that same playfullness in my art. I love bright colors, textures, but I am a goth at heart and I am drawn to the dark, nefarious, and macabre side of things which I also bring into a lot of my works. 

If you are interested in purchasing an original, would like to commission a painting, or even want to put me in your gallery .. wink wink... please reach out to let me know!
