It’s not lost on me that when most people look at my art work, they tend to want to categorize me as a “Western Painter” because of my subject matter or a “Southwest Artist” because of my use of color. It’s not really their fault… they are just basing these assumptions on their knowledge of the art world. While artists who create this style of art base their methodology on a contemporary subject matter in a traditional style, my work is made using traditional subject matter in a contemporary manner.

The work which I create is a culmination of several factors including, but not limited to, situations past and present, references to nostalgic tendencies, environmental surroundings of popular culture (specifically my own), and an obsession with the depiction of Americana in a nontraditional and unpredictable format.
