ABOUT

I grew up in a home where all of the walls were decorated with my father’s and uncle’s paintings. Needless to say, there is a long line of artists and craftsmen on my father’s side of the family, and I was greatly influenced from an early age.

As a born and raised Floridian, exploring the neighborhood lakes and canals with my childhood friends, it was only a matter of time before I became hooked on fishing. As soon as I was old enough to drive I started traveling up and down the coast, fishing from piers, jetties, or right off the beach.

I attended both Bak Middle School and Alexander W. Dreyfoos High School of the Arts. I later went on to Ringling College of Art and Design where I majored in illustration. After graduating I taught as an Artist in Residence at my former high school and later became a full-time art instructor at my former middle school. In 2012, I was contacted by Columbia Sportswear to create artwork for their Performance Fishing Gear apparel. In 2013, I was selected from The Lake Worth Community Redevelopment Agency’s Call to Artists to paint two murals on the city’s iconic Tuppen’s Marine and Tackle building.

 

I find inspiration in what I experience outdoors and continue my endeavor to translate these scenes into oil. I strive to communicate my thoughts of nature in a balance of realism and artistic expression.
