My process and style reflects my taste in art. I love the visionary process that comes with creating. Spending hours if not days designing a piece in my mind before painting it. I love how abstracts concepts can be created alongside more literal depictions. It brings about so much more emotion. I use these concepts to bring out my portraits and other literal work. I also paint quickly and refrain from any sketch work when painting this allows me to capture emotion and spontaneity in my work and to be truly sincere. I think the first few seconds you see a painting are the most crucial it either connects or it doesn't. The more sincere a painting is it has the ability to connect on a deeper level regardless of the theme. In addition I choose vibrant colors to convey whatever reality the subject was captured in to begin with. This adds another dimension to my work and allows me to be truly creative and free in my process.

I've never been more alive than I am now and I've "lived". I grew up in Europe traveling with my father as he worked across several countries. I joined the military at 18 years old. After eight years I left the Armed Forces to pursue a career in art. I had no idea where it would take me only that I knew I had to follow my own path. After four years of learning this craft I'm more confident than ever with my abilities. I specialize in portraits but I've explored many themes with excitement such as still life, landscapes, abstracts, and architecture. I love it all but my heart will always bring me back to portraits. I sell many fine art prints, take on commissions projects, attend shows, and conduct live painting. I am truly immersed in the world of art. I'm grateful to be able to live my dream everyday and share it with anyone that comes across it. Please consider a custom piece if you do not see a piece here would love to have in your home.
