Artist, father, friend, lover of life.

As an artist I create in the space were reality, imagination and abstraction bump against each other. Where they tickle, nudge, caress and coax each other into mutual cooperation with my creative vision. For me that is where the magic happens.
My technique involves constructing the subject into a heightened version of itself, paying attention to intuition rather than preconceived ideas. Pushing and experimenting to create drama and energy in each painting.

I also do tattoo work which I will be posting soon. So if anyone in the Boston area is interested in getting a tattoo send me a message and we'll talk!

Current Residence: Massachusetts
deviantWEAR sizing preference: 6'4" 235lbs
Favourite genre of music: many

Personal Quote: don't sweat the small stuff. it's all small stuff and don't fry bacon in the nude



Please feel free to fav any of these artists.
They are all awesome!
