About the Artist

Born and raised in Marysville, Ohio I have followed quite the creative path. Creative outlets have included graphic designer, large format printer, art director at various companies, cooking professionally, sometime Saucier, in restaurants in Chicago, New York, Ireland and in Columbus.

Although on a continual journey in the fine arts his whole life – I started a creative business here in Marysville, Ohio. The goal: to help local business with graphic design, branding and advertising strategies. I received an MFA in Advertising (Art Direction) in 2013 and eventually want to teach at the collegiate level.

While having a firm foundation in traditional arts and theory, I am committed to defying the norm in the visual arts and avoiding convention, consistency and style.   There are more than 400,00 type of flowering plants in the world.

Why shouldn’t the artist create as many types of works, in any medium – and avoid painting different roses all the time. You can create the same things over and over again simply changing your color palette… I refuse to do that.
