influences

As a post-baby-boom-generation child of the late 20th century media explosion, my earliest visual memories are filled with the vibrant, colorful imagery of saturday morning cartoons, cereal box characters, classic rock album covers, pop posters, sunday comics, MAD and LIFE magazines. It was a lot to process. My first young instincts were to draw, and try to replicate with crayons everything that I saw. At six, I can even remember rendering a giant Campbell’s Soup can in my oversize sketch pad.


Today, my artistic influences range from the pop art of James Rosenquist, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Chuck Close and Peter Max to the surrealism of Rene Magritte and Salvador Dali, the soft-focus realism of Edward Hopper and the street art / graffiti styles of Keith Haring, Banksy, Shepard Fairey and Ron English among others.


By striking a balance between a bold, iconic pop aesthetic and a deeper symbolic context, my goal is to create art that captures, engages, and satisfies both the mind and the soul.
