Growing up in a Northwest Detroit suburb, my first love was classic film. The way filmmakers and photographers like George Hurrell captured their stars captivated me. I began doodling my favorite actors and musicians in high school. Over the years this has progressed to larger scale projects. Whether painting at a live music event or working from a photograph, my goal is to capture the energy of the subject on a 2D surface. I work primarily in acrylics but enjoy experimenting with different mediums and am always looking for new stories to tell through my art.
