Prior USMC, military over 13 years of service
Several deployments, deployed to Iraq twice and Afghanistan once while away afforded me ample time to focus on my passion as an artist.
My driving force has always had an artistic perspective on things with many different influences.
I love to express myself on canvases that carry my art with them through life which I find unique within in the art industry. My passion has driven me to focus on enhancing my abilities by furthering my education in the study of fine arts.
In various ways such as the study of perspective and basic composition, to anatomy, still life and the application of gestures within my art. My biggest influences when it comes to tattooing my client tend to vary from oil paintings, charcoal art, watercolor, and many other forms of the fine art industry. Within my tattooing career I have strived to continue my education my studying accomplished artist that have been in the industry and have set standards for many to emulate. Within my own studies of these artist I have become an accomplished artist within the spectrum of black and grey work, realism, portraits and cover ups. My art has been described by others to have a painter’s style or feel. I like to think that in this industry there is always something new to learn and to be influenced by.
