I’ve discovered over the years (I’ve considered myself an artist since the age of 5 or 6), that I appear to have an abnormal interest in all visual art forms and visual mediums. I used to believe all artists shared this “across the board” interest with me, but have learned that most, instead, prefer to focus on a subset. I enjoy studying the latest wall of new graffiti in my neighborhood as much as spending time with Monets or Picassos.
I received by BFA from California Institute of the Arts (Chouinard’s). My wide interest span led to my working with oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastels, film, digital and print mediums. My hunger has led me to design graphics for television, illustrations for books and magazines, direct and design animated commercials and to creative direct more than 50 video games, in addition to creating my paintings. I was honored to receive a national prime time Emmy for my television work at NBC.
Utilizing a great deal of personal interest control, I currently limit myself to two painting approaches, one representational, one abstract. I grab inspiration from the observation of the environment and life around me, as well as what goes on in my imagination. I utilize both single vanishing point and multiple viewpoint perspective; local and non-local color in my work.
I look forward to exploring 3 dimensional projects in the near future.
