With this recent body of work I drew inspiration from a variety of images of beautiful nebulas that loom deep within and out of our universe. As with most of the art I create and, more so in these new pieces, I wanted to bring forth the vivid and intense color spectrums that we see in these far off galaxies. Though my work is entirely open to interpretation, this collection of paintings is the result of being truly inspired by all that we can or cannot see with our own eyes yet, know exists either billions of light years away or right within our whole being.
For these works I decided to complete them by making custom frames, stained in a gorgeous walnut color.
All my best and, much love.
Hello all. I just got finished installing some new work at The Collection in Downtown Los Angeles. This is a great opportunity for me in that it is quite different from a typical gallery exhibition. When first approached by Radix Collective about utilizing the space in the lobby to show some of my artwork I accepted with the idea that I could use some older work that has yet to have been shown publicly. That changed rather quickly by my decision to create all new work to accomodate the cases in which my art would be presented. I quickly got to work so as to harnessing that excitement I felt for being offered such an amazing location and space to exhibit these new paintings.

Hello all. I’ve been busy working on some new pieces which will soon be on display in downtown, Los Angeles. In addition to that work has pick up quite a bit which has given me the opportunity to work on some really fun projects. As you may or may not know I work as a freelance art director for TV and film. There is a good chance you’ve seen one if not many of the things I’ve worked on, some of which feature the artwork I do.
Stay tuned for updates and new works. As always, all my best and much love.

During the Summer of 2015 I decided to hold a contest where by my audience would be allowed to name their own price on particular works of art I chose to offer. The purpose of these contests was to be able to get some of my art out and into the world and into the hands of my audience. This was also a way for me to be able to show some gratitude for all the love and support I have received over the years. I selected two pieces that were on exhibition in 2014, both of which were complete with frames I had personally crafted to suit each painting. It gave me great pleasure to do so as the response was truly amazing in that the winners were able to acquire original artwork that spoke to them at a cost determined entirely of their own choosing.
All I can say is that it felt great to do something like this and know that by making this opportunity available to you, my audience, I am left with a very humble feeling of overwhelming joy. I hope to do this again soon and continue to spread that same love and support shown to me by each and every one of you. Stay tuned for more announcements. Many thanks and, as always, all my best.
Hello all. I have been adding loads of artwork over the past few days that I have created over the past couple of years. These include some smaller works done in 2015, figurative and portraiture works and, a few older pieces from exhibitions done between 2011-2014. It has been a fun process going through the vast collection of paintings I have done and selecting those that I am so eager to share with you. Thanks for your continued support. As always, all my best.
As some of you may know in addition to being an artist I have also been working as an art director for TV and film for the past 5 years. This allows me the opportunity to use my paintings as set decoration for certain projects as they best fit. Recently a piece I painted in 20011 titled, Evisceration, was featured in a Credit Karma commercial. This is very big news for me as it has allowed me to extend my reach to a nationally televised audience. I am very excited about this and am equally as please with the amount of visibility my art has received for this spot. Have a look.

The past year I’ve been working on a scale much smaller than my preferred size, that of previous pieces. This is simply due to the fact that I am currently without a studio that allows me to paint as large as I once had. These new paintings fall within the 5″x7″-8″x10″ range which at times proves to be quite a welcoming challenge. I have managed to produce paintings slightly larger while sticking to the scope of techniques applied to that of smaller works. All this means is that I have had to switch gears a bit and set aside some of the materials and paints I have become accustom to using throughout the past several years. I will admit that it has been slightly frustrating, challenging and, tough to acclimate to this new, confining way of creating. Having said that, I think I still have managed to pull off some rather interesting works of art that I might not have been able to create had the situation been different; I look at this as a good thing and something to learn from.
Smaller works, 2015
I will be posting and possibly reformatting my site so as to make it easier for you, my audience, to navigate and, more impotently understand the process’ in which I apply to get from one work to the next. Please enjoy and stay tuned for more art, posts and, positive energy. Thank you all so much! All my best.
