I was born and raised in Augusta, Georgia and now live and work in Brooklyn, New York. My work is about the dialogue that each person has with himself and others on both a subconscious and conscious level.
My art is a visual message that encourages each of us to look for something higher to which we can aspire, as opposed to settling for a pre-ordained path. It is a reflection of an individual's dream and how it coincides with the sweeping dream of humanity.
When I was a student of visual communications, I began to see the power that commercial advertising messages could wield. Instead of selling products, I decided to use the medium to offer a more beneficial gift to the viewers. Themselves. I use visual cues and vocabulary from vintage advertising and Americana to convey the bygone era of optimism, one where advertising was meant to inspire. My art is an open journal of my personal path of belief and optimism. It illustrates the moment of enlightenment that we all seek. One can see the methodology behind my thinking and experience, voyeuristically, my personal growth by looking at my art. My paintings have been exhibited in national museums, galleries and tons of TV shows and movies including "Magic Mike", "How I Met Your Mother", "Californication" and "Sons of Anarchy" to name a few.
estudio39 is the realization of a dream a long time in the making. After years of success as a commercially published artist, I wanted to take control of my brand and expand my vision to other creative endeavors. estudio39, my company, is the catalyst to achieve those goals. estudio39 is committed to innovation and aims to inspire people to live their best lives.
