BLK/MRKT One book, "BMG ARTISTS' ANNUAL", 2006, Gestalten 

My paintings and drawings are mixtures of images from sketch books, hand lettering, digital art and collage. I use pencil, acrylic, digital printing and computer projections to create these images.

The figure, hand lettering and typography are the major themes of my work. I am intrigued by Folk Art, Primitive Art and all forms of Graphic Art from information design to corporate identity systems. I want my work to contain an awkwardness that has a rhythm between shape, contrast, color and inaccuracy.

Education

BFA from Western Washington University. Studied painting under Ed Bereal - Los Angeles “Cool School”.
