I'm a father ..an artist ..a musician ..a night owl ...a daydreamer ..an introvert. I went to school for art at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas, although I never finished. I was bored with school and given the opportunity to go on tour in Europe with my band at the time. Years later, my creative focus shifted from music to art in 2007 when I co-founded Austin Art Garage in Austin, Texas, where I currently live and work. My paintings are inspired by recent events in my life, love, loss, and the little things. I am always experimenting with new techniques and processes to keep things exciting. I love to learn. Making art is very therapeutic and necessary for me. I'm not sure where I would be without it.
