I'm an artist and right now focusing a lot of energy on on abstract and expressionistic paintings. I'm also having a lot of fun making lino cut prints! My artwork often features bright, bold, rich colors, layered upon each other to create dimension and texture. In fact, I don't clear-coat my pieces because I really like the look and feel of that raw texture (but will do so upon request). I start each piece with an idea and intention but build enough elements into the painting to allow any viewer to observe their own interpretation.
I reside in the Midwest with my wife and son. I have a boatload of other interests such as music, cars, and tattoos but art is where I find my stride. I've been an Art-O-Mat artist since 2012 and I love being a part of that community. My art has been shown at SECCA (Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art), I've painted murals in local shops, and I serve on my local city Arts Festival Board. One of my favorite things to do on a road trip or a vacation is to visit local art museums/institutes/galleries and find the nearest Art-O-Mat vending machine to check out other artists!
