All pieces are acrylic on canvas.
My work explores the cinematic scenes found in real life and pushes the boundaries into surrealism.
My training in art was at The University of Kansas in Lawrence, KS. I studied Illustration and received my BFA in 2009. The day after graduation I moved to Los Angeles where I found a niche career in Photo Retouching. I am currently Freelancing which allows me time to paint when I do not have any retouching projects.
Some of the main influencers for my art are: Salvador Dali, Alex Grey and David LaChapelle. I like to create imagery that is striking, thought provoking, and desirable. An obvious message isn’t important, as long as it makes an impact. There is a loose theme throughout my work that explores opening the third eye and paranoia of rapidly developing technology.
