As a multidisciplinary artist, I have the ability and freedom to use opposing elements such as colors, materials, and a variety of mediums which creates a great contrast within the body of work that helps others appreciate the beauty and potential of any given space. My commitment to the process of creating visual arts pursues a balance of exploring my creativity while also incorporating a range of universally fascinating subject matters.

In my work, you’re suddenly thrust into a kaleidoscopic world of light, color, texture, and shape. There is continuously the juxtaposition of different tones, depth, in the overall composition to engage one’s cerebral. Yet, the work leaves the beholder with the ability to compare certain bodies of work to other paintings that may be pop art, street art, figurative, 3dimensional, abstract, or mixed media in a cohesive body of work.

To guarantee unique quality I rely on my intuition to guide my work, so there is always an element of free spirited spontaneity in each piece. From the array of different colors from bold and bright to chromatic and muted, to the variety of materials used, these factors give insight into designing. Art and color create energy that provokes an emotional reaction when people see my work.

That energy in turn inspires a deep appreciation of our need and ability as human beings to awaken our inner spirits and reveal the mysterious force of visual art. Without our imagination, we have nothing – art creates for humans a stream of consciousness that gives meaning to life by giving us the capacity to see beyond all boundaries. I truly believe art is the cure for what ails and gives us inspiration each day.

Working in mixed media is my favorite form because I find it challenging to work with several different mediums at once while making each piece a harmonious piece of artwork. Creating gives me the sensation of being able to indulge in elaborate visual fantasies while bringing them to reality.

While expanding the creative surface with new projects and concepts to approach public art, designing commercial, residential, hospitality properties with interior design has been important to my practice. This has had an everlasting impactful experience through creative thinking that shapes and redefine our lives. Experience over the years has given me the tools, professionalism and skillset to create essentially anything that I envision.

My sole mission is to follow my interests in life, and capture anything that evokes cognitive activity, emotion, and inspiration for my audience, and inevitably myself as well. My approach to art is fearless, daring, sometimes gentle, and the content in the works has composition, themes, linear structure, the highest quality of materials used that helps make the aesthetics qualities and cultural impact that the work deserves hopefully.

Coming up with my slogan and mantra - Do Epic Shit – was combing all these narratives in the work to make an impact that encompasses all the above in one capsule. It’s now a brand to help fight adversity and face the struggles of daily life that everyone can relate to and has been rewarding. The imagery in the designs have a lot of symbols, elements, shapes connects with you. This lifestyle statement has led to being be an agent for positive forward thinking that is action orientated, motivating, and a driven message as other word slogans have as well, and it has been uplifting for many people and communities.

Art does not reproduce what we see. It makes us see. ~ Paul Klee
