I have a peculiar relationship with art.

I began painting when I was 15 years old, but my art had no recognizable style until I turned 17. I did mostly acrylic work, but also a select few oils, pastels and wall collages that no longer exist. A lot of my art is scattered around the country because I gave so much away; I am not sure if some of it still exists.

For a long time, I let my imagination dictate the work. But eventually, I started to wonder if I had the ability to portray things in a naturalistic way. It was sort of a challenge to myself and a form of practice. It has made my work slightly more mature, possibly more commercial. Some of the themes of my imaginative and abstract work are a little grotesque, and it seems there’s a limited audience for that. Some of it examines inner struggle, anger, emotional suppression and purge.

Like some other artists, I have grown a little bored with 2D, so over the last few years I’ve began creating sculpture. I also plan to do more collage work, as I feel it is a solid medium for delivering a message or illustrating social commentary. My big hope is to move into public art and eventually commissioned and custom work.
