More of his bio can be found in his shop under "About"

I have no education in art save a couple of summer courses in photography. Growing up with mental illness caused me many problems and I've never really been comfortable in a classroom or most social settings. But I love to create! In my younger years it was primarily sketching, painting (acrylic, oil & airbrush). In an accident in 1992 I was crushed by a pickup and car, which left me able to spend less and less time standing or sitting. I thought art was lost to me until computers broke the pentium2 barrier and started exploring digital art.

As far as I can remember, I have always sought to represent things in a visual manner. A trait I suspect comes from the Asperger's syndrome, a form of Autism without the speech impediment. I began expressing myself through art because my brain struggles constantly with words, especially when writing, the patterns escape me. But visual patterns! Now there is something my brain understands and drives me to explore. They say every storm cloud has a silver lining, this is the gift that comes with the curse of my insanity. Art is the one thing that truly puts the turmoil my thoughts are and allows me to be at peace.
