Hello ATS,

A few here know I am an artist who has been working hard to go fulltime and make a career of it. It was a good decision and have much to show for it.

I figured I'd share a few images of my shows around WA state and other odd parts:

bunnies vs pandas up at killer college coffeeshop (sold prints)


Some of my abstracts at a group show (art sold)


Here's my alien plantscapes up at a local designer sandwich shop (still up)


Here's more of that same series at an art collective (art sold)


Some of my cosmos up at a frame studio


abstract machines up at the art collective


my fish art up at a small gallery in NY (sold more than half the show)


Always looking for new places to hang work, great fun making dull walls jump... and that's when my art gets new homes.

Thanks for looking, and I welcome your input

The abstract machines are the best.


They look like the machines I work with. For real.

used to work on offset presses, cars, computers, then went to work for google and i started painting crazy machines.

I cant do tech work anymore, painting is healthier


I sorta knew that doing machines would eventually connect to people, we all use them. Going to be doing a giant machine masterpiece over the next 2-3 weeks to go with my next month's show

The J: is my abstract signature so I make a 3d one to match each one of my series now to hang with my work, this machine one is my best yet

Way to go my old friend! You are the real deal and your awesome work always engages my eyes and brains. Glad your brave decision is paying off.

thank you! I paint to cheer myself up, each series is a odd personal way for me to express myself.

I got into frameism, and making work to match original frames. But original is the one word any artist wants to hear, so thank you again.

thank you very much!

I did one really huge fish piece 5 years ago and someone online said "hey, you should do a ton of those, make it your trademark thing" I listened, but it's just one of many series, and yeah, my mom's bathroom is decorated with them, LOL

here's my fancy piece I did for their debut at the art collective I'm with

Yes, I'm where you think I am, wink wink, plus I get to create an alternative reality to play in with paint, wink wink, its terribly fun and satisfying, ok my winker broke

But I gather inspiration from almost anything. My headiest stuff is usually my overpaintings and darker bunny vs panda stuff

Really nice stuff, here. I dig the style with the thick outline strokes and the solid colors with relatively subtle texture to them. I agree with Trueman--I really like the mechanical paintings the best, but I like the ones with vibrant colors as well.

Good stuff. Great contrast, and good balance. The main fish painting is a little too afocal in balance for my A.D.D. to fully appreciate, but overall, you have a great style and sense of color.

So glad you saw this! Happy new year friend, and glad you enjoy watching my journey.

Have had so much hands on art world experience in the last few years, and still in a disfunctional city for art and getting by. The payoff with $$ is still unpredictable, but happy with my work, and getting inquiries and random sales.

The problem with my town is hi-tech, since they actually don't pay well, and the culture is fandom and shallow fashion statements, yet I still manage.

I sold this piece to a guy at a cider bar who I think worked for amazon or adobe

I KNEW IT! Do you have pictures on each of the separate pieces i can look at?

Kids do not try this at home without supervision *wink*

Serious thanks! You have a good grasp of my elements, and yes I focus on so much with texture and lines that it gets busy fast.

Some say I work with chaotic elements, mostly since I love topsy turvy perspectives, and work subjects to the edge of the canvas. I always have to have good contrast, and colors need to be rich and vibrant if it's not a metallic object I can use silver for.

My colorful abstracts were first inspired by painting over my old failed art, this one has 2 paintings under it, and elements from all 3 are still visible

I really like the machine works, would sell in NYC no problem. A great talent, my stick figures are coming along nicely.

Your work is a pleasure to view. I DO like the machina, but am oddly drawn to your bunnies Vs pandas.

Do you have a website I can see pricing at, or can I inquire as to where in Washington you are? I'm a state away and have a habit of impulse buying.

Very Nice!!! I like your work!! I am an artist too and it is inspiring to hear of someone who has broken out and gone pro- wow!!!
Are your works in acrylic? I love them all! I think the Cosmos and Fishes are my favorites.


ETA: that is a HUGE amount of work! What kind of time-frame did it take you to do all of these?
Can you send me a pm of your website if ya have one?
