I started painting in 2009 at the age of 21. When I was younger, I wrote a lot of poetry, and during a period of writers’ block someone suggested I try painting. I immediately loved the way color could be used to evoke emotion and I was hooked. Driven by that initial passion, I spent the next 12 years studying as much as I could. I attended the University of Houston where I studied art history with a minor in studio art. By 2011, I was producing 200+ paintings a year while trying my hand in many styles.
I have exhibited my work in commercial spaces such as the Wells Fargo Plaza in downtown Houston, the famous Breakfast Klub in Houston, the Baylor College of Medicine in Waco, TX, the Starbucks in Melbourne, FL, and multiple murals throughout Titusville, FL. I’m honored to have collaborated with many nonprofit and for-profit organizations such as ArtBridge of Houston, who help underprivileged kids through art, and Cancer Below the Belt, a cancer awareness campaign.
I have an amazing wife and two beautiful daughters who support me through this journey. I thank God and them for providing me with a wonderful life.
