"Creative from the get go whether it was drawing, building things with whatever I could find, writing or music, the urge to make something from nothing was there as far back as I could remember. It was on a family trip when I was 6 that I saw graffiti for the first time and I was amazed. Everything from the design to the bold colors intrigued me. I started playing guitar when I was 13 and was still drawing. At 18 I broke or dislocated 9 bones in my left hand that took guitar playing off the table. I went to USM in Hattiesburg for drawing and painting with a minor in 3D design.
It wasn't until I moved to Wisconsin and started traveling through the midwestern cities that I figured out that I wanted to combine my love for graffiti, music, abstract art and portraits into one. Although I paint anything that comes to mind, this is the style I love and prefer to explore. I've always loved painting big so murals were the next step. I have murals across the coast in BSL, Gulfport and Biloxi. I do commissioned pieces in any style and my freelance work is typically centered around taking two or more things that don't typically belong together and making it into a mix of abstract portraiture, expressionism and surrealism. with this show at THE GREENHOUSE I am showing my most recent pieces in this style.
I love art, I love creating and I hope to hear from you. Please feel free to contact me about commissioning the perfect piece for your home, office or any other space that needs a one of a kind unique look."
