I'm a multi-disciplinary artist living in north metro Atlanta, Georgia. My artwork includes pencil, pen and ink, oil and acrylic paintings on canvas and paper, digital art, and graphic design.

In my youth I spent a lot of time drawing. My goal was to be able to draw as realistically as possible, but around the age of ten, I started discovering comic book art, where the individual's pencil and inking styles opened my eyes to a wide variety of techniques.

As I entered my teen years, my aspiration was to become an architect, and to that end I focused my school studies on architectural, mechanical and engineering drawing. Then I entered college and began exploring fine art and painting techniques as well as music, and all those dreams of becoming an architect went out the window!

When I was 20, I saw the exhibition "Kandinsky: Improvisations" at The National Gallery. I also visited the Hirshorn, the Corcoran and other museums where my view of modern art (which was never very high) was changed forever. The most impactful work for me was abstract expressionism, and the incorporation of black as a key grounding color continues in my work to this day.

I love being outdoors, and I'm really tuned in to the beauty of the natural world. Many of my works are landscapes in a real or imaginary sense, influenced by places I've been or seen. The textures, colors, compositions, energies and movement of rocks, trees, and clouds are an endless source of motivation for me and take many forms in my art.

My artistic expression can be forceful or fluid, and manifests as abstract, abstracted or surreal, depending on my mood and the medium I choose on any given day.
