After 25 years of exploring the art world, I have learned that I am obsessed with the creative process. My artistic expression has encompassed just about every media one can think of; from painting, drawing and photography to video, music and performance. Having produced hundreds of creative process documentaries and interviews, I have been fortunate enough to learn directly from some of the most amazing artistic visionaries in the world. I soak up as much life experience as I can, then toss all the madness into my brain blender and process it all into my art.

This current series of work is a journey into the heart of creative flow. I begin with a simple image, like a heart, a flower, or an eye, and then I dig in, I drill down as far as the journey takes. Each painting, mural or drawing has its own life and story, taking many weeks, months or even years to complete. I place the blank canvas, paper, wall or digital screen in front of me and open up my senses, allowing all of my life experiences to flow through, willingly getting lost within the narrative so that I am forced to find my way out to a satisfying conclusion.

I recently launched a lifestyle brand for weirdos, called “Embrace the Weird”. designing an array of bold and exciting wearable art products based on my current creative flow. It has been an amazing creative endeavor to develop an independent sustainable art business that provides unique value to my patrons while supporting me enough to keep creating and building my unconventional artistic vision.
