My Bio
I started experimenting with paint around 2009 / 2010. I got to where I am now through experimenting with cheap dollar store paints and canvases. I tried out many different techniques over the years and I’ve finally found one that I cant stop making. My friends love the pieces and so do I. So for the next little while I will be experimenting within this style and technique. Over time I will go back and try out bigger better versions of some other things I had been working on.

This is abstract expressionism. Not only does it express my feelings, but it also lets you express your feelings. These paintings move with your mood. If you are happy you see happy things, if you are sad, you see sad things. The paintings have great contrast and depth which creates detailed illusions. Made for true art lovers. Made for people with a bottomless imagination. The people who understand this type of art, will love it.

The biggest inspiration for me was Jackson Pollock. His paintings opened up a whole new world of art experience for me. Some people may compare this art to Jackson Pollocks work. My paintings use a different technique, but it is similar, and it does have the same affect.

I hope you enjoy the art, most of the pieces are available in print form, and some of the originals are still for sale. Check the links at the bottom of each post.

A good way to contact me is through my website.

awesome style. :)

i've been thinking about switching from artist's grade paints to something like tempera or at the other end of the scale, house paint.  i like the idea of making things that are made with materials most people would be able to find and afford. :)
