I am a Free thinker, starving artist and world traveler, the world is my inspiration and art is my passion. I try branching out into all realms of creativity including music and writing. Among numerous oil paintings I have co-written and performed in two bands and have 3 albums.
In college I was introduced into charcoal life drawing, where my professor (Gilah Hirsch) turned me on to the world of painting. I instantly fell in love with the emotion and fluidity of oil paintings, which has lead me to the path I am on today, and providing me with a degree. I started with traditional landscape and Expressionism type styles and eventually found my own style of local cityscape mixed with beach/wave art.
Surfing has been a major piece of my life, always keeping me grounded, inspired and searching for far off travel.These elements have trancended into my work, creating what I feel is original, technical and socially and emotionally evoking pieces.
