My art has only one requirement: color. I’m interested in color theory and how color combinations make people feel.

I’m inspired by street artists, neon signs, tile work, architecture, pop culture, movies, music, 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 art. Behind all my work is 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 hope.

I have mural art all over San Francisco- a few pieces that are open to the public include The Salesforce Transit Center and on 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, Minnesota and North Carolina.
