Art has been a passion of mine since I was a boy. Now I am bringing my visual expression to life with paint, light, and canvas.
My life has been a journey of transformation and my art is a reflection of the many experiences, perceptions, and dreams that have shaped me into the person I am today.
Each piece has a story and a connection to my life. From my roots in England, teen rock stardom, the traumatic car accident, moving to America, travels around the globe, my family and to my deep connection to wounded warriors and their struggle to heal—it’s all in these visual creations.
When I’m feeling supported and connected and I’m helping others, it gives me an incredible amount of energy. To keep my passion alive I have to be continually taking risks to grow and become a better person, as well as taking risks in the creation of visual art. When I make art, I’m saying something about this passion that is impossible to communicate with words.
Inspiration for my art comes from my heart. From all that I’ve seen, felt, and experienced. Teaching and learning with wounded warriors, discovering how to express myself, how to heal, how to be vulnerable and brave. Watching my children grow, being married to an amazing woman… So many things… My life inspires me.

Behind the Scenes
Much of my art gets signed on my dining room table at home. It’s awesome to connect with others in such a personal way.
When someone has my art hanging on their wall it’s like they have a piece of my spirit that will still be around long after I’m gone.
Presenting my artwork is like an unveiling of places inside me that I rarely ever speak about.
