"Passion is what drives my creative work. You see it in the bright, bold colors that dominate both my figurative and abstract paintings. They are a celebration of texture, color and curves--an attempt to capture the allure of the female form and ultimately passion itself. Celebrity Chef Hubert Keller is one of my most famous clients, paintings are in his restaurants in Las Vegas and San Francisco. You can see my work locally at Prime 1000(downtown STL), Exotic Motors (on Manchester), Bar Napoli (Clayton)and 10Denza(CWE).

"My illustrations are composed mainly of one central train car, with seemingly infinite arrows, body parts, gears, and symbols that work together in an attempt to find the balance between organic elements and harsh machinery. Deemed “Dream Machines”, these trains are powered not by coal, but by people, visions, and big ideas-because isn’t that what truly moves society? I am obsessed with gears, because once assembled together, one cannot move without affecting the others. These illustrations are the result of a meditative practice, where I try to never lift the pen from its initial marks on the page. There is no such thing as a mistake, because every line has intention and meaning. Whether I’m painting a mural, illustrating a dream, or chalking a sidewalk, I fervently believe that all art is interactive. By looking at any art, we immediately become participants in its theatre."
