I am a digital and traditional artist and designer located just outside the Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA.
My work across most mediums has street like characteristics with an emphasis on line, shape, color, and movement. Much of my personal work incorporates animals, nature, pollution, and raw materials such as wood and metal; it also integrates underlying political, social, and emotional reactions to the world around us.
With a strong work ethic and a passion to create, I spend each day immersed in art and design in order to broaden my abilities. I enjoy finding inspiration in all aspects of life and creating eye-catching artwork that tells a story. I am constantly looking for opportunities to work and learn with other artists and designers.
My end goal is to work with a group of like-minded artists and designers that strive to use their skills and education to better each other and the world around us with work that provokes reaction and understanding.
Please support my work by sharing on social media and be sure to take a look at my online shop.
