About Artist

Basic Information

  • Artist Statement

    I completed my Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Drawing in 2005. I joined the U.S. Army, was commissioned as an Officer and in 2007 I deployed for fourteen months to Iraq in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. After almost nine years of active duty military service, I'm now pursuing my passion of art full time. I work digitally and with mixed media. In my work, I tend to address themes related to gender roles in modern culture as well as sober subject matters like death and illness with a colorful flair of fantasy and brilliant colors. I can site current pop art, the world of Asian Ball Jointed Dolls and low-brow art culture as enormous influences on my work. I’m currently pursuing my Masters of Fine Arts and I look forward to entering new pieces into shows, cons, festivals and taking on commissions as well. If you'd like to purchase my work, I have several items for sale on Society6, Zazzle, Red Bubble and I have a Patreon link if you'd like to be a patron. Just look at the links below and click on them.
