My artwork is focused on storytelling, symbolism, and
spirituality. My goal is to reach the you, the viewer emotionally and spiritually by
creatively using color to awaken perceptual triggers in your memory. I like to employ visually thick words, phrases, or quotes to create imagery symbolizing
the hopes, dreams, and struggles of the African American Culture. My artistic career began as a sports illustrator and a commercial artist in the Pacific Northwest. My sports painting were published in Beckett Football and Basketball magazines in the mid to late 1990's. I moved back home to Little Rock, Arkansas in 2004. Since then, my work has been focused on using a colorful palette to paint portraits and figurative mixed media paintings. My work can be found in several galleries and private collections in the United States.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
I draw artistic inspiration from the expressive figurative work of Ernie Barnes, the bold, colorful palette of William Tolliver, and the masterful compositional brilliance of Charles White
I employ a technique called abstract realism. First, I create colorful mixed media abstract backgrounds. I then paint portraits or figurative works on top of these colorful backgrounds. I intentionally use bold colors for portrayal of my subjects rather than realistic colors to heighten the emotional impact.
