BIO


I paint with a spoon. My path to becoming a professional artist is offbeat as well. While touring as a stand up comic for over 15 years I began painting and designing my own promotional posters, album covers, and t-shirts. This led to commissions from musicians and other comedians. Soon I began oil painting and I was invited to be a featured artist in the Los Angeles underground monthly art show Cannibal Flower.

I embrace themes in my art and I'm compelled to create entire series based on them. From exploring my childhood by painting enormous cereal box covers of the early 80's to tapping into a psychedelic fantasy world of monsters and mushrooms. The next series is always in the works as I drain mountains of ball point pens into the pages of my sketchbook. My fan base and client list continue to grow and my work has been exhibited in galleries and pop up shows in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
