When I look at trees I see old faces, and when I see the mountains I see people and animals. At night when I'm driving all the trees in the moonlight look like people laying on their backs staring up at the stars, or two old lovers staring at each other from across the street. It's very surreal, I feel a strong connection to nature because these things pop out and speak to me when I see them and I think my life's purpose is to attempt to show others how to see things this way. I think if people can see what's hidden in plain sight, in nature and in our artwork, the deeper purpose to our existence here is revealed.

I think that art has the potential to heal us and teach us, and that we are here on this planet to be inspired and learn and be fascinated by what we can do.  Art has the ability to transform and reflect human consciousness, a leaf petiole looks just like a human blood vessel and it also looks much the same as the galaxy we live in. I doubt this is a coincidence, I believe art can open our minds by showing us the intricacies of the world we live in, when we choose to be open and see it. I've learned so much from the paintings I make, they have their own minds, which are really just extensions of my mind, and your mind. Something very peculiar is happening in this flow of ink and water and I'd like to find out more about it and include you on this journey.

Lots of alternative photographic pieces mixed with paintings, transferred onto tiles, wood, glass, and metal. ArtResin increases the depth of my artwork and really makes it POP. I may also spend some of this on food for my dog and I.
