The Story

I currently live and work in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina after moving from Wilmington, North Carolina in 1999. The son of a textile / interior designer, I always had a strong interest in art and design. I began group art classes at the age of seven including drawing and oil painting, which I attribute to learning the basic skills of a fine artist. I continued to focus on the fundamentals of fine art throughout my formative years. Upon the completion of high school, I went on to study fine art, graphic design, photography, illustration and creative writing, receiving a Bachelor of Science in Visual Communications from Mount Olive University. The paintings and drawings I hang and post online are only part of the narrative. As an artist, I work hard to develop art releasing the truth inside a negative world. The positives inside negative expression is my main focus while always transforming reality in order to give my story a voice. I developed my techniques specifically to capture and emphasize the flowing creativity inside a non-traditional approach to composition. The evolution of my work is created by analyzing and observing life, death, positives, negatives, balance, mind, body and soul. I make every attempt to speak to myself and others about the truth inside every piece of art I create. As you will see, it’s not a beautiful still life or landscape, “it’s my truth” and what has turned into reflections of life.  I am currently working on many different projects, but my main focus is always producing art and design which tells a story.
