As far back as I can remember, I have loved cartoons and weird animation. I always wanted the latest toys, video/computer games, comic books, cartoon movies, action heroes, you name it. Growing up in the 90s, my mind was immersed with the weirdest cartoons to have ever been created (mainly thanks to Nickelodeon) propelling my imagination into a bizarre and unusual frenzy that would soon have me drawing my own cartoons all day in the back of my notebooks.


As I grew older and was forced to work a mundane job in order to survive adulthood, I left my cartoons by the wayside and filled in my artistic endeavors by playing bass guitar in various bands on the weekends. Recently, I found myself wanting to create some of those strange ideas that had been cooped up in my brain after all this time by putting them into a more physically interactive medium that can be held and felt. So I picked up polymer clay one day and began messing around for fun until my art began to develop into something I enjoyed and something people wanted to look at as well!

My art helps me feel like I can stay in touch with the kid I once was and the overly active imagination I once had. Taking me back to the days when life seemed more than just a boring routine and there was more to it than what meets the eye.

The main things I'd hope to achieve with my art is to spark a bit of the kid in you all and help encourage the imagination for the next generation. Giving people something funny to talk about, or at the very least, just something to look at to make someone smile."
