Growing up in Arizona and visiting California every summer exposed me to lots of natural beauty at a young age. My parents were supportive of my art early on. In High School I started painting and in undergrad I studied painting and graphic design. When I found working as an art director in New York unfulfilling I decided to get my Master’s where I focused on digital audio and video.
While much of my art is semi-surrealist and may be considered “serious” I also have used my art to make humorous political statements since 2000. I created many of the first political memes on the internet with my site BushCartoon.com from 2000-2004. Today that same variety continues. I make art when the inspiration hits me, resulting in flurries of work and long periods of slow production.
