I will do art everyday for the rest of my life.

Thank you for your interest in my art. I began drawing in earnest as a shy kid, discovering a world that made me laugh, a plethora of oddball new friends, and a place to set free my restless mind.

I tend to paint subjects with a combination of surrealism, juxtaposed emotions, cultural symbolism, and lots of anthropomorphism, coffee with honey, soft music... and some kind of connection with mystery and energy. A lot of artists will tell you about tapping a collective consciousness during the creative process, believe every word for it is there and it is a true and good thing.

If you need a nice illustrator who draws weird stuff you have arrived. Tell me what you have in mind.

If you need fresh album art for a band, definitely contact me, music needs art and visa versa.

Check back often If you like outsider art, self taught artists, the un-mainstream, surrealism, pop art, fine pencil drawings.... strange and quality art wares, occasional vintage enticements, fine reproductions. I print all my own notecards and prints in archival inks and fine art papers and take pride in presentation, cleanliness, quality.

Warmest regards~

So glad you came by to see my strange art. I have been drawing since I first saw crayons. Once I figured out how to draw things that made me laugh out loud, there was no turning back. So, now that I am a bit older, I use oil paints and fancy pencils mostly.

The characters, the creatures, the anthropomorphic clan, the watery flower gardens... places that I find in blank canvases and bigger consciousnesses. Places of sensitivity, vulnerability, love, defect, deep lonliness, and lighthearted bonfires. I will forever be humbled by the opportunity of creativity and the way in which it connects me to everything.

Warmest Regards,
