I’m a professional illustrator/painter. I’m a tattooer and own my tattoo studio, ColourStudios in Tulsa. I worked in television for many years. I was a guest artist on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition for 3 seasons. I provided all art for the first season of Texas Flip and Move. I’ve provided art for Tiny House Nation and a few others. I’ve traveled the country doing murals for the last 15 years. I’m currently intrigued by animals. Their limited freedom caused by man. And most recently in my work is all about birds. Birds on the other hand aren’t bound by our hand. They can up and go whenever, wherever. That’s true freedom. So this current body of work I’ll be showing represents my thoughts on that. My work speaks in metaphors. It’s not always so direct to the viewer. You need to think about it for a second while you’re staring at a piece. I’m a mixed media artist so I tend to combined a variety of elements in my work.
