Art is my punk rock.
Comics, skateboarding, punk rock, graffiti and lowbrow… these are the raw ingredients that go into the stuff I make, be it paintings, illustrations, or large-scale murals. I use the visual language of my youth to express themes and messages that are important to me as an adult. I am an inherently mixed-media artist, and will often use several techniques and media in the same piece, even using intentionally “wrong” combinations in order to experiment with material interactions. Graffiti and street art have given me a growing fascination with layering and the ongoing erosion of materials and surface.
My art style has been described as “Spray Punk.”
I really enjoy playing with color and texture. I work with acrylic primarily, sometimes in combination with found objects and bits of refuse. I usually question if I can make art with something before throwing it out. Emotions play a huge part in my inspiration, as does nature. I believe that inspiration can come from almost anything and art is most certainly in the eye of the beholder.
I was born in Shreveport, LA and grew up about an hour south in Natchitoches. I studied art at Northwestern State University, but became restless before I finished and went on to experience life in Texas, Arkansas, and North Carolina before returning to Louisiana. I enjoy experimenting with different acrylic techniques and often add other elements such as paper, fabric, and found objects.
