I am a completely self taught, local artist with approximately 7 years experience in the field. I have received numerous commissions throughout the years from interior murals to family portraiture.  In 2000, I received my first commission for a wedding portrait and from then on, the requests kept coming. Later in 2000, I also got a job as an art teacher at Montecito Fine arts in Arcadia, CA teaching oils to children from 7 to 15 years of age… It didn’t last long, though, as I believe that the only way to teach is to do…

As an artist, I tend to reach within to the collective unconscious to evoke imagery that speaks to the subconscious, the inner workings of the psyche… I think that is where all basic truths lie dormant… My job as an artist is to bring an awareness of the beauty that exists in this world through all the superficiality, pretensions and all around ugliness that seems to be prevalent in society…
