ABOUT

You know those little sketches that people create mindlessly during boring meetings? I paint those. Just like you see kittens in clouds or Elvis in a potato chip, I see images in my doodles. It's called pareidolia (that's your word of the day). I find it quite interesting how a random collection of lines can turn into a petrified cowboy, ie. Eternal Sunset. So I tend to work on the abstract and surreal spectrum of painting since doodles are rarely realistic.

Like pretty much every artist ever, I've had a passion for art ever since I can remember. But rather than go to art school I became a mechanical engineer since it promised a much more stable economic future. And it did just that while at the same time allowing me to pursue painting. In between paintings I spend my time reading art books and blogs, watching Youtube videos, and watching reruns of Bob Ross to grow my artistic talents.
 
Shortly after I graduated college in 2000, I got into the home recording hobby. Home recording is basically what it sounds like. I bought some sound recording equipment and set up a bedroom studio and began writing and recording songs. While I did enjoy doing that and am proud of the music I wrote, I did decide to put that hobby on hold indefintely and concentrate on my artwork.
