artist. designer. visionary.
I've always had a passion for Fine Art and Painting. After graduating with a B.F.A from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, my professional career took me through the world of advertising, film, and entertainment. Over the last decade I've received over 15 awards for design and art direction, including concert graphics for Madonna & Beyonce, commercial graphics for Lexus, and movie graphics for Iron Man and Transformers. I was able to explore new mediums, concepts, and artistic expression creating interface designs for global brands such as Yamaha, T-Mobile, and 7-Eleven. All of this experience has brought me to you today as a Fine Artist bringing freshness from Laguna Beach, Ca.
As an artist and painter I’ve had over a dozen gallery showings focusing on photography and oil paintings. My style is to combine Abstract Expressionism while giving the subject a unique modern twist both stylistically and through unique techniques, to capture today’s time and culture. I’m capturing a moment in our history and society through the lens of Abstract Expressionism.
On this site I’ve made available originals (oil on canvas), prints on canvas, and prints on paper. Each original oil piece is provided with an appraisal, certificate of authenticity, and signed. Available for art commissions.
