BIO
I was born in Chicago, and at a young age, migrated west with my folks, to be raised in sunny southern California. My Polish parents raised me with a sometimes strict, but always loving hand and fostered an appreciation for art, music, good home cooked food and style. With a strong affection for all things Cosmic, Pop, Music and Fashion, inspiration nowadays is infinite. So I strive to create art and design on a daily.

The past five years have been filled with daily practice of my art, self publishing books, public art projects, gallery and pop up exhibits, and creating live art at music festivals. I have had the blessing of making the cover of KOLAJ Magazine twice, was awarded 2014 Best Visual Artist in OC Weekly Readers Choice Poll, was commissioned by Questlove of The Roots to paint his drum kits for the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and I had my first work licensed for placement in a published automotive advertising campaign. The future is bright.

ARTIST STATEMENT
I grew up a creative child, interested in Art and Music. I continue to push myself to this day, dabbling the same creative outlets, as a designer, mixed media artist, DJ and producer of electronic music.

My passion, the past six plus years has been to get my hands messy, and not be confined to creating on strictly digital platforms. I love to push the envelope, I enjoy focusing in on my work and letting the creative self-therapy take over. I enjoy researching my subject matter, fine tuning usage of my materials and the journey each piece takes me on.

My goal is to create aesthetically pleasing work, with some substance to promote a dialog from the viewer, and to create those same aesthetically pleasing images with a space for the viewer to lose themselves, escape into the piece and just enjoy what they see, and feel the same freedom in viewing it, as I felt in creating it.
