Why do I refer to my work as “wicked
awesome?” Partly because I’m from
Massachusetts and I sometimes have the habit of sticking the adverb, “wicked” in front of adjectives, but mostly, I strive to create work that’s wicked awesome.
I started to create artwork at a very young age. I was the type of kid that would make his own drawings on the inside covers of coloring books. Then, I got busy with water colors, pencils, clay, and markers. I even went to press checks with my dad (he was a creative director). Eventually, I attended Montserrat College of Art and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design with honors.
Today, I’m a graphic designer, illustrator, and painter. I make paintings with wood discs that combine abstraction and pointillism which creates a multi-dimensional effect.
The concept focuses on creating
planes of space within two dimensional
artwork while simplifying the imagery to
I refer to this concept as “space-ism.”
My approach to the paintings has crossed over to my illustration work.
Over the years, I have worked for some of the top advertising agencies and creative boutiques as well as held exhibitions. I have designed for various projects such as print ads, digital, merchandise, and animation.
Whether its designing for brands or slinging paint in the garage, I just want to make wicked awesome art.
