OctFF

I was born and raised in Milwaukee, WI and Fairfield, CA and moved to North Carolina in 2005.  I started painting roughly around seven years ago.  My work is influenced by artists such as Jean Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, and Keith Haring as well the human anatomy and skeletal structure. I am a self-taught artist and my style is mixed media with undertones of heavy acrylic painting in the background. I love attention to detail and spend a lot of time working on my intricate body parts weaving in found objects at times as well. The title of my show is Parts and Pieces and is very reflective of my work;  featuring work including  vintage frames, slides, human as well as animal skeleton drawings, physical skeletons, and vintage maps.
