About Me

I have heavy thoughts that scare some people.

I imagine that I'm likable but people don't agree.

I live in an alpha state at times…observing culture.

It makes it easy to conjure up verbal nonsense.

It’s also an image-maker...an emotional twinge sometimes...that leads to my need to share in a visual.

But I don’t attach my chain to the culture train.

I have delusions of the path on which internationally-famous artists tread.

I was a job-hopper, name-dropper, songwriter and music producer...submitting songs for the big time.

Made two small albums in obscurity but ended up broke, shamed, blamed, disgusted, and blown out.

Then it hits me…I've been creating art off and on since forever.

Since then I'm making paintings on canvas and wood, as well as other works, including neon.

My works are in the classical school with modern elements that can be gently disturbing.

Sometimes I do abstract geometric but on Tuesdays it's an action painting with color fields and heavy texturing.

I studied drawing at Glassell School of Art in Houston and at The Art League of Houston.

I live with my wife and our daughter in the woods of Northeast Texas mostly screaming and having fun.
