Bio / Artist statement -

I'm a 26 year old man. I work in IT. I went to Edgewood High School. I Grew up as free range kid on a farm (dad's) and all over the Willy Street neighborhood, mostly on Few street (mom's) across the Weary Traveler. I'm self taught and like using simple shapes to communicate complex meaning. I generally don't know what i'm making. I experiment with several small ideas and continue until I have an image that just "looks right". I use this unconscious recognition as a means to figure out what's going on in my mind. I aim to communicate the maximum amount of meaning with the fewest number of lines (a sort of minimalism).
