Artist Statement


I am a self taught visionary surf artist. I dove head first into making works of art following a color-filled dream that I experienced over a decade ago. I allow my innate senses to guide my genre defying works that reflect my fascinations with waves, surfing, water, nature, light and energy. My use of fiberglass as the primary ingredient in my surf-inspired works was originally sparked by the need to teach myself how to repair a sun-damaged surfboard several years ago. I also incorporate re-purposed materials such as steel, wire, and wood into my works which have been described as translucent, tactile and highly reflective. Finally, I believe in using my art to give back by regularly donating art work and funds to charitable causes and events.
