I'm a resin artist living and working in Atlanta, GA. My signature style incorporates epoxy resin with various inks, pigment and acrylics. The complex process involves layering, manipulation and the application of household chemicals and an open flame. My work can be found in several art galleries, public buildings, hotels and corporate offices, as well as, private collections worldwide.

My contemporary abstract paintings are created using my original mixed media technique, "Alternative Abstraction". Developed in 2012, my complex process combines ink and fluid acrylics with epoxy resin. Careful layering and manipulation produce vibrant abstracts, bursting with energy, with a glass-like finish. As a self-taught artist, my methods are unorthodox. Rarely will you catch me using an easel or a brush. “I just spill some paint and go with the flow!” I have mastered the skills and chemistry of my medium, to further develop the process and expand its boundaries. Concentrating on the process, rather than the meaning, my spontaneous creations are purely emotional.

“Music is my sole inspiration. I always paint to music.
I translate the audible to visual, it's like I paint what I hear.
Lyric and melody become color and form,
As I construct a painting like composing a song.
My paintings are symphonies of color!"

Using only gravity, patience, and self-restraint, my creative ritual can be described as both liberating and exhilarating. I simply “go with the flow”. I experience a freedom like no other, achieved by relinquishing control to "fluidity", or the natural path of liquid, as it flows thick or thin, into and out of other streams. Colors combining as they wish, resisting the temptation to intervene, while waiting for the perfect moment to add a mist of chemical, causing an eruption of color, or dragging a tool through lines of color. Fluid motion is beautiful perfection, a natural flow that can be controlled only to a point — which is a good life lesson. It’s about learning how and when to let go. This karmic exercise is quite therapeutic as well. Positive energy flows through me onto my canvas. My art is a book that tells the story of my personal journey. Each painting is a paragraph, each body of work a new chapter.
