Pop. Low Brow. And everything in between.


I decided to become a professional artist in part because people so often commented that I have a unique style.

Most of my work falls within the category of Photorealism. Of course, an accurate painting of a photograph, by itself, is not necessarily artistic. I therefore bring to my paintings a contemporary graphic sensibility, with influences of Pop, Minimalism and Low Brow.

I take special measures to ensure that my paintings will last over time. Unlike many painters inspired by the great masters, I choose modern art materials over traditional materials if they offer a proven archival advantage.

I do not copy trends in the art world; I follow only my own aesthetic instincts.

After graduating from the University of California, I continued my art education at the Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles and several community colleges. I learned sign painting at L.A. Trade Tech. My independent studies of human anatomy (from an artistic perspective) remain ongoing.
