"I am a graphic designer and illustrator." - All I wanted to do was make cool album covers like the rock albums I grew up listening to. It was when I realized that the British art design group Hipgnosis were responsible for a lions share of my music collection I began my work.
I studied band logos until I could draw them on my school mates book covers in my sleep. I recreated large scale pencil drawings of my records and wallpapered my room with my artwork. I sold my artwork to my friends so
I could buy more records to draw. Thirty years later, nothing has really changed.
"I am a musician." - I can call myself this, or a rock-n-roll never-was - it depends on how I am looking at. I have performed and recorded nationally for Polygram Records. I have written songs for Paramount's Famous Music Publishing for several international artists.
Music and art go hand in hand.
As a musician, I am simply painting the air with sound - where just like on canvas - shape, mass and color are critical.
"I am an artist." - To say I am a passionate participent of art seems more comfortable for me. I have so much to learn, want to learn and need to learn.
This becomes my process for my work.
I create because I have to.
I consume art.
And with out it, I consume myself.
