Interests and Personality

BiographyI have been an artist since my very first memories. I grew up on a dead end road in a very small place in Southeastern Ohio. As a child I owned an old illustrated copy of Mother Goose Rhymes that I would carry around with me everywhere I went. I would spend hours trying to copy the illustrations exactly as I saw them. As a teenager I progressed to fantasy art and comic book illustration. Anything with an aesthetic focus on human anatomy. At this point in my life I am working mostly in black and white. I specialize in charcoal pencil portraits and I am also writing and illustrating my own book. The illustrations will be in pen and ink. My pen and ink work reflects a more cathartic and personal element to my nature as an artist, which at times could be considered psycho-sexual and, to some, disturbing. It is drawn purely from imagination with no outside references.
InterestsPen and ink, culinary art, surrealism, avant garde film/art/music, oil painting, mortar and pestal, seafood with no exoskeleton, batteling anxiety, amstel light, astrology, mythology, eroticism, rusticism, photography, nature, psychology, anatomy, puppetry, eastern Europe, chamomile tea, protecting my loved ones, pointilism, scorpio rising, introspection, dilapidated buildings, symbolic dreams, cancerian moon, Dadaism, domestic work....
