IS THERE AN ARTWORK THAT YOU ARE MOST PROUD OF?
A mural that I'm proud of is one I completed recently at the Thorold Community Pool in Jun 2021. I included a variety of sea creatures and characters which consisted of an octopus, mermaid, sea turtle, whale, fish and divers.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
I draw my inspiration from the things in my surroundings or visions in my head. Nature, fantasy, mythology and cultural symbolism are themes I include in many of my murals and art pieces.
WHAT IS YOUR MOST IMPORTANT ARTIST TOOL?
I'd say my most important tool is my tattoo machine. I am a professional tattoo artist working in Niagara Falls for the past 8 years. I work at Dawg Pound Tattoo Studio on Ferry Street. The tattoo medium and industry is one of my favourites to work in and be a part of. I try to blend similar themes and styles in my tattoo and paintings.
IS THERE SOMETHING YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT IN YOUR ART STUDIO?
I can't live without my briefcase filled with spray paint and painting supplies. Its like pandoras box., opening it will release untold creative energies!
What is your Motto?
Do the best you can with the most you know.
