Ready to Hang

This painting was inspired by rituals in the woods. I have always been fascinated by tribal initiation ceremonies. How everything just blends together with nature around the fire. A place where life long bonds are made and disputes can be settled for good. A time when the ordinary becomes magical.

I am abstract artist with over 18 years of experience, who creates colorful interwoven paintings. I grew up in suburbs of Richmond Virginia and completed a degree in Fine Arts at Virginia Commonwealth University. I am is influenced by Cubism and African Art. I use vibrant colors and contrast to make shapes seem to jump out at from the negative space on the canvas. Here are a few other things that have influenced me: Metaphysics, Star wars, Hip-hop music, Zen philosophy, The cosmos, Quantum science, Nature, Chess, and Lots of reading and research
