MOTIVATION & PURPOSE:

From an early age, I navigated the many lanes made available through art. Painting signs on car windshields, production art with T-shirt companies, graphic art, animation, book illustration, zines, etc.

 In the summer of 2004, I took a road trip down the highway of Blues. It was in Clarksdale, MS that I found a new creative direction and inspiration. Coming from a musical background in Garage / Punk Rock, I soon realized that Delta Blues was a large part of a missing equation. Not only the music, but the people and stories that formed what we know as Rock n’ Roll.

As I look for new inspirations, my aim is to create art that captures human experiences.
