I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I believe we all start out as artists, and I have no doubt that at some point, each of us has picked up a pencil or marker to connect with our creative side. I just decided to stick with it and have stayed committed to developing my style which consists of a wide range of realism, impressionism, abstract and a little bit of all three mixed together. In short, I paint what I like and choose colors that move me.
When I was younger I used to daydream quite a bit, coupled with the reality that I could apply those dreams to paper made it all the more exciting for me. In the 5th grade I lived in Saudi Arabia and would create these posters that became a hit in the American compound I lived in and at school. I sold every poster I created and even back then I thought to myself hey this would be cool to do as a living. If you’re ever stuck in life and not sure which direction to take, always take a look at your past and recognize the good memories because they truly are precursors to your future.
I’ve had my work published from TV series on TNT, Cinemax, to art magazines, graphic novels and video games. I sell prints in Europe, South America and coast to coast here in the US. I work with quite a few different mediums, whether it’s with watercolors, gouache, acrylics, oils, charcoal or digital I try my best to remain consistent in the quality of the work.
My subject matter is also wide ranging, consisting of concept, whimsical, wildlife, fantasy and science fiction. While I do work in both traditional and digital mediums I tend to follow a simple rule: I make my traditional paintings look like digital photos and my digital work like traditional paintings. I believe art is more than just a piece of paper or canvas; it is an extension of the artist himself. For me, my goal is to produce art worthy of being displayed in people's homes, featured on magazine covers, a catalyst to inspire our youth, and to leave a legacy for my family. Time escapes us all, thus, I choose to spend my time being a loving husband, chasing my dreams and developing my craft.
