Artist Statement

My work is influenced by graffiti, tattoo and comic art. Growing up my trips visiting family in Wisconsin found us passing through cities such as St. Louis and Chicago. Taking in the street art that these cities had to offer found it's way into my artistic style, with bold outlines and vibrant colors.  

Nature and wildlife are recurring themes that often appear in my work. I use these more as a symbolic note that carry a deeper underlining meaning.
