I am a creative, eclectic artist who uses art to express my beliefs and thoughts.
I use pastel, oil, acrylic, marker, spray paint and almost anything I can find to get my ideas across to the viewer. I work mostly on canvas or paper but have on occasion painted plywood pieces using acrylic paint. I have also created a piece of art, in the style of the late artist Basquiat, with pastel and spray paint, using an old door as my canvas.
My style is influenced by the music of the 60’s, punk rock attitude of the 70’s, graffiti of the 80’s, and today’s world of living in a social media induced culture. I am always looking for opportunities to display my work to people and show them who I am. Although not the primary reason, a supplement to my income is part of my motivation for selling my art. I have sold to Canadian and American customers and have many European followers.
