If one were to ask what type of artist I consider myself or describe my style I would say that I am an eclectic visualist. This is because as an artist I’m always looking for new discoveries and I create a variety of work from a traditional contemporary, modern to a digital tech style. I feel that artist like musician become categorized because it is easier for some one to market and package what you do. Picasso for an example is known as the master Cubist, but that’s not all of what he accomplished.
I received my B.F.A from the School of Visual Arts in New York in 1988 but didn’t come out on to the art scene until 1990. This may have been contributed to the fact that after completing my study at a prestigious four year art school, I felt the need to invent myself. Within the years after finishing college I began to explore the nuances of visual art with more precision. During time off from work I would stroll through the galleries of SoHo were I could rethink about my creative processes, technique and genre.
In 1999 I founded Artizfacts Visual Arts Specialist, a small visual arts communications platform which strives on conveying thought provoking concepts for the community through the means of creative expression with multi-media. My future projects include completing my independent animated film project and continue to educate as an arts instructor.
