Growing up in Lake Tahoe and Colorado, my Art has been influenced most by nature. From a young age, I saw shapes and colors when looking at landscapes and animals. When I’m outside, creativity flows and I’m able to share what I see with others.
As a kid, I doodled my way through school. When I got to college, I was still fixated on worlds I saw in my mind. I signed up for Art 101, drawing, and painting, but felt an urge to expand what Art could do, where it could live, and how people could experience it.
The cyber world has always fascinated me. When I was 12, my parents told me I could get my first computer if I memorized the entire DOS manual, so I did. When I took Intro to Photoshop in college, everything clicked. Mixing traditional Art with digital mediums unlocked a vortex to expand creativity the way I envisioned.
In 2001 I graduated college and spent the next 7 years on a musical voyage, playing bass in a band with my brothers. I kept with the Art, mixing mediums to make band posters and album covers.
In 2008, we decided to go our separate ways and I turned my focus entirely to creating artwork.
It’s been a heck of an adventure ever since — full of color, good people, and best of all, the chance to hear what others care about through the conversations Art opens up.
It would be impossible to do any of this without the massive amount of love and support I get from family, friends, and fans. I hope the Art I create can be a reverberation of this love and energy, which is abundant in nature and the connections we make when creating.
I can’t thank you enough.
