Artist Statement

I really enjoyed painting and drawing as a kid growing up in Mass. I pretty much majored in art through jr high and high school. I attended SMU in Dartmouth Ma and then joined the Army for 4 yrs in the 80s. It was a great experience and I lived in Europe for 2 yrs and really got to travel and take lots of pics and meet interesting people in between working.

After 4 yrs in the military I relocated to Tampa Fl and finished my BFA with a concentration in photography. I loved spending time in the darkroom. Being a veteran and broke college student in the late 80s I got hired by the post office while finishing my degree at the University of South Florida.

While working at the post office I started freelancing, painting murals,showing my photos in galleries and I started painting again. Then after testing the waters for a year I knew it was time to jump ship and head out on my own. Kinda scary after 20 years of steady employment with benefits.

I have been self employed for approximate 15 years now. I do art shows in Florida now and the southeast. I also paint murals and enjoy commissioned works as well. I paint architecture and cool car portraits.

I also print all of my own art and do sublimation for myself as well as other artists.
