b. 1970 Anaheim, CA
To capture what a place feels like at night, this is how I am inspired to paint since the age of 19. More than half my life I have applied my best efforts and attention to seeing and translating light on to canvas.
At 20 I sought out mentors in Carmel-By-The-Sea, CA and was accepted and taken in by John Mason. I was given every opportunity to learn and show my art in his gallery, as well as taken under wing by many gallery owners and artists alike.
Willingness to learn and understanding of the value of these gifts was my education. The day came in my late 20’s, when I realized it was time to learn how to paint, not a collection of techniques, but a style of my own.
I closed my self-named studio/gallery, in Carmel, after 3 years and moved to New York to attend Art Students League in 1997. In 1999, I returned to Monterey.
Being fans of street art, my wife Sunshine Jackson and I opened Outer Edge Studio in 2004. The art form was new to the gallery setting and many of the artist were showing in this way for the first time. We wanted it to be the best gallery experience these artist would have. Word got out and the approval attracted the likes of Shepard Fairey, David Choe, BASK, and TES ONE.
We began publishing these artists, and I took a break from painting.
In 2012, I accepted a job as mentor at the Youth Arts Collective in Monterey. Learning by being mentored at age 19, and then giving this back to 14-22 year-olds, has been a real gift in my life. Through this I gave myself back to painting and allowed my creativity in new ways.
