The Softer Side of the Studio
Every man has a softer side that he expresses in different ways. I express mine through inspirational pieces like Focused, a portrait of my Maine Coon cat, Rocky. Maine Coons are often ideal pets for special needs adults and children due to their mellow and intuitive natures. After reading about a young artist who has Autism and how her Maine Coon helps her to be able to focus and create amazing works of art, I felt compelled to paint her story using Rocky as a model. Purple Pansies was inspired by my friend, Beth who loves pansies and named her jewelry business after them. Check her out on Etsy: PurplePansy333.

As an avid comic book fan, the re-interpretations of iconic Marvel comic book covers and characters has been the most fun for me. Mixing my love for comics with the actors who brought each character to life for a new generation. Of course I don't limit my imagination to Marvel. Check back for more characters to come!

During the summer it gets a little too toasty to paint in my studio during the day, so I use that time to complete comic book colorist orders and test different colors or ideas for my latest projects using ProCreate and Photoshop. One of my favorites was transforming a friend and her boyfriend into the iconic couple: Harley Quinn and the Joker. Being an artist herself, she loved the artistic re-imagination. Curious how you would look as your favorite character? Send me a picture of yourself and which character you would like to be and I can transform you too!
