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 a painter, but a writer, an illustrator, a photographer, an artisan candle maker.
I first picked up a paintbrush when I was 15 years old 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 art world once again.
As an artist, I consider myself a contemporary expressionist and abstract artist (as if these types of labels matter). I take my inspiration from great Neo-expressionists such as Jean-Michele Basquiat, Max Hetzler, and Martin Kippenberger, to name a few.
I am fascinated with the simplicity, playfulness, and innocence of children's drawings and work to add that same playfulness to 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!
I’ve been lucky to have received press coverage and exposure. Check out what I have been up to below!
