About Me

Artist Statement
My goal is to produce compulsively “lookable” paintings that make you say “shit i’ve felt like that” and sometimes it might be an uncomfortable conversation. While I love pop art's color and rendering styles I am more interested in the "new sincerity" moniker which rejects celebrity and brand as identity.

Those new to my paintings might be shocked to hear that they are mostly built up from spraying automotive paints with mega-detailed cut one-time-use stencils. You’ll also see paint mixed with silica, 24k gold and copper leaf, broken glass, cut and layered strips of transparent vinyl, brushed enamel, stacks of resin, and of course you’ll see my obvious love affair with hot rod paints with oodles of metal flakes and candies.

My integral first step is taking photos of real people in my studio. The photos are then used as source to build the paintings; however, there’s no print of the photo within the artwork itself. While I do have that MFA, the elaborate techniques I use in my paintings are my sole invention. It’s a unique style that I’ve built up with heart through the years.

He keeps you engaged in conversation and will take music requests all while setting up and taking photos. Time really flies by when you're working with him in his studio." Read less
