|The majority of my life was spent living in Allentown, Pennsylvania but I now live in Canutillo, Texas (a few miles west of El Paso). I have been involved creatively for most of my life. Early on I drew graffiti in black sketchbooks and also learned to airbrush. Egg tempera now holds my full attention. I earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts from Kutztown University and have worked creatively as an artist and designer for nearly 15 years. My influences and artists I study include George Tooker, Paul Cadmus, Andrew Wyeth, N.C. Wyeth, Jared French, Edward Hopper, Diego Rivera and others. My wife Carmen and I have two beautiful children.
