"When I begin a new piece of Art, I try to convey my search for spiritual meaning. Early influences of Eastern Philosophies has had an impact on my view of life, death, and life again. I am forever inspired by my longtime muse who shapeshifts alongside aliens, family members, my dog, and myself in many of my surrealistic works of Art. My goal is for every painting to first appear a little bit wrong, but on closer inspection, reveal some resonance of truth."
