The Artist: Born and raised in Southern California, I have surfed much of my young life. Throughout my life I has done many sports. The sports that I was most interested in was surfing, skiing, and skateboarding. I love the beauty and the serenity of surfing the most. Being out in the ocean and one with the waves was a spiritual event for me. I loved the motion of the ocean. I loved the wind spitting the tips of the waves as it broke to the shore. I felt at peace.
Through most of my life, I felt the same calm and serenity doing art. It seems to calm me when I am stressed out. I found it a great outlet for me and a way to escape. I also found it a way to express my feelings, whether it be positive or negative; whether I am up or down. Art is my passion. I went to school at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, where I started as a Advertising Illustrator. I found that I can work both of my talents as a Graphic Packaging designer. After graduation, I found my way to New York City. I have worked in many companies as a graphic designer there. At the time, I felt my outlet was in sculpture and poetry. After five years, I felt that it was time for me to move back to California. Living here, I got absorbed in drawing and painting. I went in many directions, but found that Lowbrow Art was the best fit for me. I have been doing Lowbrow Art for over 20 years. I started showing in Lowbrow Galleries. The origination of Lowbrow art in galleries started in La Luz de Jesus Gallery and that is were I first started showing my art.
