Can you tell us a bit about you?
Growing up in a Minneapolis ghetto was belittling yet ironically colorful. I started oil painting and found depicting the strange ordeals of the average soul fulfilling and close to home. I’m an artist, filmmaker and singer-songwriter based in Germany and have lived and worked in New York, San Mateo and Los Angeles. I’m an eccentric butterfly.
How did you find your voice as an artist?
I’ve always been intrigued by negative human behavior, and as a result stumbled into Criminal Psychology.I use my creativity to redirect oppression.
Looking back at your early works, what do you think about them today?
I love my earlier work because it is what my frame of mind was at the time – nothing has changed.
Do you have favorite materials to work with?
Oil is my favorite material, but I love sculpturing (see Talkin Bull -) and copper with fabric (see Tina). I create many types.
Do you have a vision of what your artistic future could look like?
I try to tell emotional stories about survival. So nothing will change other than to get my screenplay’s produced, which are about the needy and the greedy, the man closest to the street.
