About the Artist

All of my art has only one requirement: color. I’m drawn to geometric shapes and lines, rendering them in colors that I find both in the city and in nature.

About the Artist

All of my art has only one requirement: color. I’m drawn to geometric shapes and lines, rendering them in colors that I find both in the city and in nature.

I’m inspired by street artists, neon signs, tile work, architecture, nature, the candy aisle. San Francisco is a great incubator of all those things. My more abstract and wild pieces are a form of meditation, a release after painting more structured pieces. The meaning, when there is any to be found in my work, is derived from my personal struggle with addiction. I paint because I got a second chance at life, because it is the thing that brings me the most joy, and so others know there’s a different way.

I have mural art all over the city- a few pieces that are open to the public include The Salesforce Transit Center and on the side of Jane on Larkin off Cedar Alley in the Tenderloin. I have private pieces in gyms, apartments, backyards, and offices scattered throughout the Bay Area, Colorado, and Minnesota.
