“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” - Mark Twain
I was born to create. I was the kid that was always constructing, sketching, modifying – using anything I could to bring my imagination to life. Art runs in the family, therefore much of my talent can be attributed to the creative environment I grew up in. When I wasn’t playing sports, I would draw from photographs in my dad's library of sports books, to the point where I could recreate images from memory.
At age 12, one of my hockey drawings was featured in a Sports Illustrated publication. This accomplishment, paired with a passion for sports and a talent for visual art, solidified my calling to become a professional artist.
Today, I specialize in large scale portraits of athletes, musicians, cultural icons, and historical figures. I am inspired by their fierce dedication to their craft, and the energy and focus it takes to be successful at the highest level. With every piece, my mission is to capture the emotion within the moment, whether that is a touchdown celebration or an acoustic performance.
I am proud to have my work hanging in sports stadiums, restaurants, corporate offices, and the homes of private collectors around the world.
