Born in Kalamazoo, MI (yes, there really is a Kalamazoo) I began drawing, painting, observing, thinking, and creating at an early age. Finger paints came before first steps. Though I may have held a bat, thrown a football, or swung a golf club, a pencil and paper was always more interesting/fun/inspiring for me. The thrill of thinking differently was born, and I've never had that type of passion for anything else.

I studied art and design for 5 years at Central Michigan University (a surprisingly fantastic art school), which culminated in a BFA with a Graphic Design concentration. The seeds for unique, abstract thought were planted early and blossomed nicely. I've made the difficult/simple decision to do what I love: create beautiful work for those who live to appreciate it.

The results of my cerebral playthings (at least those for sale under my copyright) have wound up here, on my Mental Playground...

So please feel free to look around, swing fluidly on some monkey bars, and sincerely enjoy the work displayed here. If you wish to purchase something also, well, rent's not getting any cheaper, and I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you for the visit, and follow, like, or whatever suits you on social media.

Cheers! And remember, we're all star stuff anyway.
