ACRYLIC ON WOOD

FORT WAYNE, INDIANA
When I create my art I look for things that stand out to me. That could come from things that stand out to me in nature or from weird doodles from sketch books. Also finding a lot of idea for the final product working on loose computer paper.
Before I got into the style of I produce now. I would take a realist photo and try to recreate the image on paper. From that I was introduced to a character style type of art, drawing on USPS stickers. Slowly converging to acrylics from paint marks. After some time my style began twisting and turning into what I create now.
My work tends to focus on a main creature or object in its environment. As if the thing is being documented or say 'cheese' for the audience that stairs back. They are usually in a world that is some like our own.
My biggest influence in my art come from many different things in life. Reading books as a child Dr.Seuss with his winding and twisting the world to Spider Wick making the belief that this outer worldly creature was in your own back yard. Graffiti and fine artist Greg'Craola'Simkins, Bob Dob, Salvador Dali, Nathan Ota, and much more.

An eye framed with a quivering smile. As if the creature is trying to hold in a laugh but the laughter burst out Created to put a smile on the fewer.
