What is your medium of choice?
My choice of medium changes from time to time. I work with ink while doing illustrations, such as this example. My work also includes oil paintings on canvas and boards, mixed media using ink, paint, and found paper. Some of my ink drawings I convert to silkscreens and print on paper, as well as t-shirts.
Who/what is your muse?
My inspirations come from pop-surrealists, classic illistration in old advertising. I am very influences by Salvador Dali, Kieth Harring, and Picasso.
Where did you study your craft?
I studied at Longwood College, in Farmville, VA and had the oppurtunity to go to europe a few times with the art program at Longwood, and studied for a month at the Glascow School of Art in Scotland. That was key to my development as a serious artist. Atr Longwood I earned My BFA at illustation and printmaking.
