My Bio

Art is what I do, and what I love. I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I believe we all start out as artists, and I have no doubt that at some point, each of us has picked up a pencil or marker to connect with our creative side. I just decided to stick with it and have stayed committed to developing my style which consists of a wide range of realism, abstract and a little bit of both. In short, I paint what I like and choose colors that move me. My subject matter is also wide ranging, consisting of concept, whimsical, wildlife, fantasy and science fiction. I work with acrylic, oils, digital and follow a simple rule: I make my traditional paintings look like digital photos and my digital work like traditional paintings. I believe art is more than just a piece of paper or canvas; it is an extension of the artist himself. For me, my goal is to produce art worthy of being displayed in people's homes, featured on magazine covers, a catalyst to inspire our youth, and to leave a legacy for my family. Time escapes us all, thus, I choose to spend my time being a loving husband, chasing my dreams and developing my craft.

I get  inquiries and requests to do custom work from a lot of different sources. I just wanted to create this journal and pin it to my profile page so I don't have to respond to the same questions that I tend to get frequently. Free Work I get asked a lot, and I mean A LOT to do free work. While I'm no stranger to free work (Heck I donated close to 10 large paintings and prints to charities last year) and when I offer to paint without pay it's because it's a gift from me and it means something. Please don't ask me to do free work, if I see your project and want to donate my time to it I will approach you. I have never, ever EVER asked someo
