Visual Art – Phoenix, AZ

I'm an artist with a keen eye for the absurd and the sarcastic, which I passionately counterbalance with a genuine perspective for motivation and positivity. My work is heavily influenced by my love for pop culture, music, inspirational metaphors and surrealism. Throughout the course of my life, I have explored the vast potentials of various art mediums including, sculpting, wood carving, writing, singing, guitar playing, jewelry design, clothing creation, pencil sketching and of course graphic design. My earliest memory of art began nonother than with his big brother back in the early 90s. These days were the genesis of his artistic roots. My brother Chris and I would draw in our matching sketchbooks laying side by side on their mother's identical homemade pillows. Bellies to the carpet and pencils in hand. The creative landscape of choice for us two aspiring DaVinci's was muscle bound self-created heroes shooting machine guns and fighting monsters. The biggest and buffest inspiration for creating jacked superheroes was the Van Damme movies that I and my brother were obsessed with in those days. With their elbows digging into the pillow's floral fabric, we would create masterpieces that we would soon plaster our own bedroom walls with. "I always looked up to my big brother as a man and as an artist. I remember trying to emulate the kind of drawings he was effortlessly creating. My sketchbook was usually covered in used eraser crumbs and his sketchbook was... well... not!" Since the early days of sketching, my skills have continued to grow as an artist. Branching off into several mediums. My love affair with the digital art world is going on its fifth year. The old paradigm of the "starving artist" should never apply to anyone! To be a starving artist is a figment of the past, in this digital world, all artist have a chance to share their art with the world and all artists should pursue their ever growing love for art." ...more
