Since I have began my career as a visual artist I have travelled many roads and seen some strange things. I have experience from working as a graphic designer, photographer, sculptor, illustrator, curator, and teacher. I decided to begin working as a fine artist in 2011, devoting all of my time I could afford into oil painting. Occasionally taking various commissions, I continued spending the next few years in my studio experimenting with different methods of painting and subjects searching for a style uniquely my own. In my progress of development, I was compelled to enhance my depth of understanding into color. What began as a quick aggressive process exploring the behavior of color, called 'Dilated', created in 2013, later developed into another body of work titled, 'Intersections of Time and Color', in 2014. I am currently finishing my next series to be released March 2015.
I was born in Tampa, FL, later growing up in different areas along the east coast including the Appalachian mountains. Though I had a keen interest in math and science at a young age, my interest later gravitated towards the creative arts. And so I received my bachelor's degree graduating with honors from The Art Institute of Atlanta. There I studied illustration and design, focusing on the art, of art, training with all mediums. While learning traditional techniques, digital mediums in our modern world were also learned about, including graphic design and digital image processing. I would like to recognize and give special thanks to Michael Budowick, Sarah Lippincott, Elio Guevera, Professor McGonnigle, Patrick Quinn, and Shawn Crystal.
