What an honor! For the second year in a row, one of my drawings was selected to be in the Surreal Salon show at the Baton Rouge Gallery – Center for Contemporary Art. The judge this year was the phenomenally talented Camille Rose Garcia.

Surreal Salon, the annual exhibition celebrating the growing quality, popularity, and diversity of the pop-surrealist/lowbrow movement, returns to Baton Rouge Gallery for its eleventh year in January 2019. The exhibition, to be held January 3 – 31, 2019, in partnership with the LSU School of Art, will aim to once again feature works from artists around the world, giving audiences a unique multi-sensory experience with one-of-a-kind contemporary art typically not seen in this region.

The art below was selected for the exhibit and will only be available for purchase for a limited time, through the gallery between now and closing of the show.

Psychedelic Portraits: My new art store on Etsy

I’ve opened an Etsy store to sell custom, commissioned portraits and abstract art as well as finished pieces. Find it here: Psychedelic Art by Commission

I seek through my art to represent the life and movement that makes up the entire universe. There is no surface or area of space that is not filled with energy and movement; quantum particles pop in and out of existence even in deepest space. It’s the quantum foam of existence. So through my detailed marker drawings, I am representing this endless energy and the unity of animate and inanimate objects—at a subatomic level, it is all one. Matter is just one form of energy. I’m creating a sensation of life through inorganic abstract shapes.

The drawings are on acid-free archival paper with a variety of markers. I take anywhere from 6 – 8 weeks on each piece, working with a magnifying glass to produce very fine lines.
