Artist Statement

"I don't draw & paint on canvases, I dance on them. I take what I know as a professional dancer & choreographer and apply those concepts into my work!" Taking on paintings, drawings, props, as well as clothing. My goal is to bring the viewers into a multi-faceted realm of mental entertainment!

Repetition, circular patterns, bright colors and time restrictions is what drives me to create awesome and creative artwork. My work is a reflection of life experiences as a world renowned artist! It covers topics such as life, death, fame, humor, sex, child like innocence, depression, shamanism and extremes. All of my artwork is done under calculated time constraints.

Time constraints may seem like a detriment to most artist, but not for me. I thrive under pressure and truly enjoy its effects on my artwork. Maybe, I'm still brainwashed from my eight year service in the military
