I FAV what I like.

Art is what I do, and what I love. I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I believe we all start out as artists, and I have no doubt that at some point, each of us has picked up a pencil or marker to connect with our creative side. I just decided to stick with it and have stayed committed to developing my style which consists of a wide range of realism, abstract and a little bit of both. In short, I paint what I like and choose colors that move me. My subject matter is also wide ranging, consisting of concept, whimsical, wildlife, fantasy and science fiction. I work with acrylic, oils, digital and follow a simple rule: I make my traditional paintings look like digital photos and my digital work like traditional paintings. I believe art is more than just a piece of paper or canvas; it is an extension of the artist himself. For me, my goal is to produce art worthy of being displayed in people's homes, featured on magazine covers, a catalyst to inspire our youth, and to leave a legacy for my family. Time escapes us all, thus, I choose to spend my time being a loving husband, chasing my dreams and developing my craft.

Interview with Ambient Design (ArtRage)

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 22, 2015, 1:12 PM
I was recently asked to be a featured artist for ArtRage, every painting done in this article was created with their product. This is a product I've used since the first release and will continue to use due to the way it mimics traditional mediums. You can view the interview here:…

A lot of people seem to shy away from this product for professional use from the $60 price tag. Which I find odd, because since when do we need to pay $500+ for something to produce professional work. I've seen amazing artists have complete art shows with artwork that were created with crayons. And how much are a large box of crayons, $4?

Don't let the price tag mislead you, this is a product for professional work. I'd like to thank Hannah, the ArtRage community manager, for choosing me as their next featured artist. I'm honored! It was fun going through my work and realizing just how often I use ArtRage, I could've easily added another 6-7 paintings to the article that were created with the program.
