I am an artist and designer. That is all I know and it’s all I’ve ever wanted to do. I am always striving to evolve as an artist and keep up with a world that is changing at an increasing rate.
I graduated from Oregon State University with a BFA in Graphic Design with a focus on Fine Arts. Design is rapidly changing with the advent of technology and everyone is able to work on computer programs. I take pride in my design work because I focus on making it great and not pieced together at the last minute. In this cookie cutter world of art and design, my focus is to stand out among the rest and create the best work I possibly can for my clients and employers. I’ve worked in-house and on freelance projects with such companies as: prAna, Rip Curl, Redsand, Haro Design, Dragon Optical, Nike Swim and many more. I try to diversify myself in an ever changing multi media landscape with print design, illustration, videography, paintings and more.
My paintings are inspired by both the human condition and the environments that surround us. I am also very intrigued by how we deal with each other as humans, both on a personal and physical level. It is a subject that has been dealt with in art for centuries and will keep being an important subject matter for as long as humans exist.
