Moving to the west opened a new page in my life. It was here that I realized it is possible for someone to live successfully and happily as an artist. I have been painting my whole life, and in my youth was instructed by a very prolific man, Robin Grass. He sparked my interest in fantasy art and the nature of creating my own story on canvas. I started out determined to be a muralist, and after visiting San Francisco one time, I knew it was the place to come. I enrolled in the Art Academy and finished in four years with a Bachelor's in Fine Art. During those four years not only did my art ability improve, but so did my drive to succeed as an artist. After school, I got hired by Prairie Prince Studios to help with a set for a Bette Midler Production called 'Kiss My Brass'.
We have a vast array of projects that we work on, including the most recent one of restoring Claus Oldenberg's 'Inverted Q' for Stanford University. I have had many incredible opportunities working with this company, and have pushed my own artwork abilities to the next level. When I am not working, I paint with a group of graffiti muralists to clean up messy vandalism with full-on productions. These are fun projects that allow me to express myself to the public. I also am involved in many different galleries and art shows, and plan on showing internationally in the near future.
