I’ve lived in Topeka and Lawrence, Kansas all my life. Heavily influenced from the campus of KU and an older under lining hippie vibe of that area, my surroundings have affected a lot of my artist purpose, to inspire and create. My website has allowed me to display my own mix of academic design with my own modern, conceptual, provocative socially conscious though drive. In 2011 I had my first international group exhibition at the Southern Nevada Museum of Fine Arts in Las Vegas, Nevada. I was honored to become a part of their permanent collection with “Gallery of Hearts”. This only inspired me to move forward! In 2013, I was blessed to be a part of 100 international contemporary artist from all over the world in my first New York exhibition in Historical downtown Harlem. “Power of perception” was the publication produced by this inspiring collection. In 2015 I was honored by my local city (TOPEKA,KANSAS) by becoming the 10th annual Aaron Douglas Artist of the Historical Aaron Douglas Art fair! It was surreal, but a dream to be acknowledged or referred to a childhood hero of mine, but only inspired me to move forward.You can often find me at my (public art Space @ Amused Art Gallery located in Topeka’s growing Art district N.O.T.O.) From every Art-walk(First-Friday) too where I teach creative drawing lessons weekly! Stop by and visit (907 North Kansas Ave.) in N.O.T.O.! I am working on a new mini collective of paintings more importantly a number of illustration projects all written & designed by me that I am so freaking excited about!!!!! (Illustration page) It is amazing to be a proud recipient of 2017 International Galileo Award Curated by Salvatore Russo & Francesco Saverio! These recent international/national and local achievements have only intensified my excitement for so much more. So please stay tuned for 2018 too see what your new favorite American Contemporary Fine Artisan has planned for your eyes and soul to feel.
